Presented as successors to the ThinkPad P53 and P73, the ThinkPad P15 and P17 completely reengineer the devices’ thermal designs to promote faster and more optimized overall performance. Compared to their predecessors, the P15 and P17 boast of 13-percent more airflow, a 30-percent larger CPU heat sink, larger vents, and a new thermal mesh for heat dissipation.
Additionally, the company has also adopted a new modular daughter card design which replaces the soldered solution found on older systems. With that, these new devices are able to offer four times the number of GPU and CPU configurations.
