Lenovo has also boosted the processor and memory, offering a choice of 8th Generation Intel Xeon and Core CPUs, including new six core models, and up to 128GB of DDR4, double that of its predecessor, the ThinkPad P51.

Samsung has updated its enthusiast- and pro-focused SSD lineup with the introduction of the Samsung 970 EVO and PRO.

The M.2 form factor NVMe SSDs, which are compatible with most desktop and mobile workstations bought in the last year or so, offer groundbreaking performance, superior reliability and best-in-class capacity, according to Samsung’s Un-Soo Kim.

Samsung appears to be narrowing the gap between its PRO and EVO lineups. Both SSDs offers the same five-year warranty (previously, the warranty on the EVO was only three years) or up to 1,200 terabytes written - 50 per cent higher than the previous generation, though the latter is dependent on capacity.

The Dell Precision 5530 2-in-1 is the first mobile workstation to feature the Intel 8th Generation processor with Radeon Pro WX Vega M GL graphics

Dell has unveiled its first 2-in-1 mobile workstation, the Dell Precision 5530 2-in-1, a slimline 15-inch machine featuring a flexible 360-degree hinge for multiple modes of interaction and can be used with the Dell Premium Pen, a digital pen with 4,096 levels of pressure and tilt functionality.

Like the HP ZBook Studio x360, announced earlier this month, it allows product designers and architects to start with a concept sketch, then take their designs all the way into 3D on a single device.

HP may have been first, but the Dell Precision 5530 2-in-1 is significantly smaller. It has a slighter frame in general, thanks in part to the next-generation InfinityEdge 4K Ultra HD display, but is also notably thinner (9 -16 mm compared to 20.4mm).
