Lenovo's new ThinkStation S20 and D20 can be configured to function as desktop supercomputers. Due later this month starting at $1,070, an optional Nvidia Tesla C1060 GPU adds more than $2,000 but boosts power for complex calculations. Both the Lenovo ThinkStation S20 and D20 have Intel's Turbo Boost technology and a green design.

 Lenovo has unveiled two new workstations for professionals in specialized fields such as computer-aided design, game development, and digital content creation as well as oil and gas exploration.

Lenovo's ThinkStation S20 and D20 can be configured to function as desktop supercomputers. Adding the Nvidia Tesla C1060 GPU platform to the workstations, Lenovo said, offers 240 additional cores of dedicated math-processing power to speed up complex calculations.

"Designers, engineers, developers and scientists require the highest levels in computing performance to help them produce breakthrough innovations," said Tom Tobul, Lenovo's executive director of enterprise, software and peripherals.
