Lenovo Thinkstation P320 Tiny Review: Much Performance in the Cigar Box

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017 | Gadgets

The small black for the desktop: Workstation computers in a small form factor are a popular alternative in many companies to larger and clunky desktop systems. With less energy requirements and more space on the work table is not surprising. In addition, processors and graphics cards in the small form factor are usually not much slower in office work. This is proved by HP, for example, with its slice PC, and Lenovo also wants to reach the ThinkStation P320 Tiny, which we received as a test pattern from the manufacturer.

Our model is very well equipped for such a small set-top box with Windows 10 Pro in theory: An Intel Core i7-7700T processor and a dedicated Nvidia Quadro-P600 graphics card in the only 18 x 17 , 5 x 3.5 cm square square. In addition, 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of SSD. What more could you want in a cigar box?
Lenovo says: more connections! Six monitors can be connected to the ThinkStation at the same time. The rear of the small PC is literally littered with four Mini Displayport 1.4 sockets and two Displayport 1.2 sockets. In addition, there are five USB-A connectors with USB 3.0 speed, two on the front and three on the back. Nevertheless, the system still has space for an external WLAN antenna and an RJ-45 connector with Gigabit Ethernet speed.

We can not find a USB type C port. However, this connection is used almost exclusively for mobile systems. Desktop users also want desktop connections and Lenovo offers exactly that in a small package. First impression of the small workstation: very good! And even with the detailed testing, we can expose Lenovo's box a little.
Complete package for direct installation
A generous selection of accessories is included next to the PC. Lenovo provides a mouse, keyboard, a Kensington lock cable, and Vesa brackets for the chassis and the power supply. It is noticeable that the power supply itself is relatively large. Lenovo, of course, saves on the one hand in the narrow-sized housing and on the other hand waste heat, which is produced by the power supply itself.

Thus, the Thinkstation P320 Tiny has all the necessary parts to be assembled into a powerful system after unpacking. This saves company administrators time and money. Just through the many Displayport sockets, the box is much more than just an office machine.
