Lenovo today announced the super-compact ThinkStation C20 redefining expectations for a small dual socket workstation. Meanwhile, the ThinkStation C20x offers an extra boost of memory and more powerful processors, making it the highest performance workstation of this form factor.
A Fit for Finance & Wealth Management
Lenovo designed the ThinkStation C20 and C20x workstations with the ultra-compact, number-crunching performance needed to drive financial markets. With space at a premium at standard traders’ desks, the C20’s small size — it’s 46% smaller than the Dell Precision T5500 and 31% smaller than the HP Z600 — without compromising on performance. Its size allows for more ThinkStation workstations to be installed in a rack or trader desk versus the competition. An analyst can also attach and run up to eight monitors. Lenovo engineered many industry “firsts” to package high performance into such a compact design. New Lenovo-developed technologies include a patented slim, rotatable optical drive and a tri-channel cooling system.
The workstations offer:
- Choices of Intel Xeon 5600 Series processors
- Up to 96GB of DDR3 memory on the C20x with 12 available DIMM slots
- Up to two NVIDIA FX4800 class graphics
- Native SAS support on the C20x
- Certified for compatibility with SBFI Trading and Control Room Furniture
“SBFI believes the smaller size and reduced heat output of the ThinkStation C20 and C20x workstations will provide greater flexibility for users who have high processing requirements and are a great match for our products,” said Andrew Plumbly, International Business Director, SBFI, Ltd. “This will enable users to do more with the space they have.”
Pricing and Availability
The ThinkStation C20 and C20x workstations will be available in mid-June with models of the C20 on the web starting at approximately $1,199. The C20x will be sold through business partners.
