the performance and quality-focused Lenovo ThinkStation supports
ThinkVantage® Technologies such as Rescue and Recovery™ and Client
Security Solution, providing users with superior data security.
ŠŠ Tested and Certified by ISVs
EXTREME PERFORMANCE
•Brand-new Intel® Xeon® CPUs on both S and D series workstations
deliver unmatched performance with incredible efficiency
•ThinkStation workstations come armed with a full line of bleeding-edge
graphics technologies, including the NVIDIA® QUADRO® line, supporting
SLI on select D Series configurations, and ATI® FirePro™ graphics
•With up to a 1060W power supply on the D series, ThinkStation delivers
all the juice your key components need to maintain peak performance
QUIET AND RELIABLE
•The ThinkStation’s 24db idle operating noise level makes it nearly
undetectable
•ThinkStation's unique thermal design is engineered for maximum cool air
delivery to key components, reducing the risk of hardware failure
ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE
•Both the S20 and D20 are EPEAT™ GOLD, GREENGUARD® Certified

CUTTING-EDGE POWER.
ThinkStation® S20 & D20
The ThinkStation® is a high performance, high
quality workstation designed to run graphically
and computationally intensive applications
for professional users who require a level of
performance unattainable with a standard
desktop PC.
TWO WAYS TO INNOVATE
TESTED AND CERTIFIED BY ISVs
•All Lenovo ThinkStation workstations share common features that
showcase Lenovo's dedication to quality, including quiet acoustics, a cool
thermal design, RAID standard, back-lit front I/Os and tool-less upgrades.
Both the S20 and D20 also feature unique qualities that make them a
great match for your individual needs.
•The single-processor Intel® Xeon® ThinkStation S20 is the ideal mid-range
workstation solution. Offering a robust 625W power supply, even the S20
allows for easy upgrades and offers support for two high-end powered
graphics adapters. It is ideal for 2D digital content creators and users of
mid-range CAD and EDA applications.
•The dual-processor Intel® Xeon® ThinkStation D20 is a computational
powerhouse. Offering 12 DIMM slots and RDIMM technology, the D20
supports up to 96GB of blazing-fast DDR3 memory and is perfect for
users of memory and CPU-hungry applications like high-end CAD/CAM/
CAE, 3D digital content creation and professional video editing software.
The D20 also offers 1394 and SAS support standard, support for
NVIDIA's Tesla™ C1060 GPU computing solution and NVIDIA SL
on select Quadro cards, as well as more expandability options than
the S Series.
Lenovo is working closely with leading software partners — such as
Autodesk®, Dassault Systèmes® and PTC® — to ensure optimum performance
and stability in the demanding applications you use every day. Independent
Software Vendors (ISVs) test and certify system and application compatibility,
providing you the assurance of a robust and reliable platform.
LEADING INTEL® TECHNOLOGIES
The new performance-driven Intel® Xeon® micro architecture utilizes Intel’s
new 45nm technology for energy-efficient, multi-core processing.
•More instructions per clock and improved caching
•Dynamic Power Management for less energy consumption during periods
of low utilization
•Intel® Turbo Boost technology for additional performance during peak
processing
Additionally, Intel’s newest Xeon® processors deliver world class performance
combined with superior energy efficiency through a large latency decrease
and a bandwidth increase over previous generation workstations.
