White Paper Tests Notebook PC vs. Mobile Workstation

14 Jan, 2020 By: Cadalyst Staff

When it comes to visual computing for CAD, these two types of machines are very different — and the numbers show why.


PCs and workstations have evolved into two breeds that share many of the same genes; from the outside, a mobile workstation and a notebook PC may look nearly identical. But inside, the two are very different, and our benchmark testing demonstrates why the mobile workstation represents the most appropriate, productive, and cost-effective tool available for visual professionals on the road.

In this 12-page white paper from the editors of Cadalyst and sponsored by Lenovo, you'll find:

  • A Comparison of Mobile Workstation and PC Components, highlighting how the two differ in areas including CPUs, GPUs, memory, and more.
     
  • Performance on CAD Computing Workloads, including charts comparing the performance of a Lenovo ThinkPad P1 mobile workstation and a general-purpose commercial notebook PC.
     
  • Factors that Affect Reliability and Ergonomics, including cooling and acoustics design considerations.

Today more than ever, the mobile workstation is the logical choice for visual computing professionals on the move, and this white paper explains why. Register to download your copy today!
