Lenovo’s ThinkPad T570 is a loaded laptop that boasts a range of whiz-bang technologies, but the ability to run Intel’s secretive Optane memory stands out.
When it ships in March, the T570 will be ready to run Intel’s Optane, a new class of memory and storage that promises to be significantly faster than today’s SSDs and DRAM.
The T570 is the first laptop announced with support for Optane. Intel has not said when it will ship Optane memory, but the T570 has the hooks to support the technology.
The T570 also can be configured with a 4K touch display, Nvidia’s GeForce 940MX discrete graphics and up to 32GB of DRAM. The laptop is targeted at business users, but it could be a dream machine for enthusiasts.
