Lenovo has unveiled new ThinkCentre desktops powered by AMD Ryzen PRO 8000 Series desktop processors with up to 16 TOPS (trillion operations per second) of integrated NPU (neural processing unit) capability dedicated to process artificial intelligence (AI) workloads, including the ThinkCentre M75t Gen 5, the ThinkCentre M75s Gen 5, and the compact ThinkCentre M75q Gen 5.

The ThinkCentre M75 Gen 5 family of desktops leverages the AI capability of its component while optimizing its energy efficiency.

“The AI PC era is already here and at Lenovo we are embracing it to unlock new possibilities,” says Sanjeev Menon, vice president and general manager, Worldwide Desktop Business in Intelligent Devices Group, Lenovo. “The need for businesses to integrate AI into their operations continues to grow and our ThinkCentre M75 family of desktops, with a strong and stable power supply, the ability to upgrade components when needed, and the space to expand memory and optimize thermal management are the ideal options to enhance productivity with AI without heavy investments.”

AI-Accelerated Performance

Designed for multitasking, the ThinkCentre M75t Gen 5 tower and ThinkCentre M75s Gen 5 small form factor desktops offer AI-accelerated power driven by an AMD Ryzen PRO 8000 Series desktop processor. Combined with an integrated graphics with AMD RDNA 3 technology, up to 64GB DDR5 (5600MHz) memory and up to 2 TB of Gen4 SSD storage, both desktops offer fast speeds for even the most data-intensive tasks, according to Lenovo.

The ThinkCentre M75t Gen 5 and ThinkCentre M75s Gen 5 desktops offer Lenovo’s chip-level AI features, including power usage prioritization to allocate power to the correct apps when you need it, and an AI-driven fan that optimizes fan speed, so the system remains cool, and reduces noise levels. With Lenovo’s AI features, the desktops will maximize a video rendering software’s performance for content creators, increase fan speed during intense coding sessions, and =balance software performance when multitasking. The AI features continuously learn as you multitask.

Both desktops offer a flexible expansion slot for hardware additions, nine USB ports for easy connectivity and the ability to support up to four independent compatible displays. Content creators and engineers can benefit from the ThinkCentre M75t Gen 5 tower desktop’s ability to host either an AMD Radeon RX 550 4G or AMD Radeon RX 6600LE graphic card, the company reports.

Compact Performance

Compact enough to fit inside a shoe box, the ThinkCentre M75q Gen 5 is a tiny desktop with full-size performance designed to fit into virtually any location. Packing up to an AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 8700GE desktop processor, integrated graphics with AMD RDNA 3 technology and up to 64GB of dual-channel DDR5 (5200MHz) memory, this desktop provides erformance while remaining small enough to hide behind a monitor.

Despite its miniature size, the ThinkCentre M75q Gen 5 is still expandable, customizable and easily upgradable. It supports seven USB connections, has two Gen 4 SSDs, has built-in driver support for older OS versions, can connect to three compatible displays for maximum multitasking and features toolless access to the SSD and memory module for expansion when needed (cards sold separately). For the most space-restricted environments, the ThinkCentre M75q Gen 5 can be mounted using a universal VESA mount to free up even more space, according to Lenovo.
