    Get more done, quickly and easily

    With our patented Tri-Channel Cooling technology, the P520 manages internal air flow and power supply better than most workstations. As a result, it runs more smoothly and efficiently—even when handling large workloads. The P520 also supports RAID virtualisation technology and has two M.2 PCIe SSD slots embedded in the motherboard, enabling you to enjoy blistering-fast storage speeds.

    Hassle-free, tool-free

    Should you ever need to swap any components, there’s no need to worry about tools and screws. Simply slide off the side panel and away you go. You may also wish to know that we can help automate many of the manual tasks associated with deploying new machines, from asset tagging to custom image loading.

    Durable and flexible

    Like every ThinkStation before it, the P520 has undergone rigorous testing under extreme conditions. ISV-certified, it boasts error-correcting code memory, ensuring even greater accuracy and reliability. What's more, the front FLEX module gives you a range of options and flexibility, including a media card reader and blazing-fast Intel® Thunderbolt™ 3 port.

    Ready for anything, real or virtual

    With virtual reality (VR), almost anything's possible—from revolutionary designs to stunning special effects to highly complex simulations. With the powerful P520 and top-of-the range, high-performance NVIDIA Quadro® graphics (optional), a truly immersive VR experience awaits.

    A helping hand when you need it

    You’ll be able to keep your P520 running at its peak thanks to Lenovo Workstation Diagnostics. Available for both desktop and smartphone, this intelligent app can help you diagnose and troubleshoot potential system issues by providing step-by-step guidance on optimal system performance. And should your machine ever fail to boot, an error code for additional assistance will be sent wirelessly to your smartphone.

    In addition, there's Lenovo Performance Tuner. Free to download and easy to use, this software can help you fine-tune your workstation to get even more out of it.

    Better for the planet—and your bottom line

    The P520 meets some of the world's most comprehensive environmental standards. A GREENGUARD®-certified workstation, it has also been rated EPEAT Gold, ENERGY STAR 6.1, and up to 80 PLUS® Platinum PSU. And as a result of its energy efficiency, the P520 can even help lower your utility bills.
