The ThinkStation P310 Series Small Form Factor Workstation from Lenovo delivers the performance of a tower, full-featured scalability, tool-less access, integrated handles, and a modular design, despite its compact 12L small form factor. The system is powered by a 3.5 GHz Intel Xeon E3-1245 v5 processor armed with four cores, which will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously and provide significant performance gains when running multi-threaded tasks. If you need more power, the CPU can deliver extra performance by increasing the clock speed up to 3.9 GHz utilizing Intel's Turbo Boost 2.0 technology.
The 8GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 non-ECC RAM has a 288-pin UDIMM form factor and allows the computer to run multiple applications simultaneously and also to quickly access frequently-used files and programs. The current memory configuration is one 8GB module with an additional three slots available for memory upgrades, making for a total of four memory slots, each of which is able to support up to 16GB, or 64GB total.
For long-term storage of your files, a 256GB Opal SATA III SSD offers quick access to your data. While the SSD may not have the larger storage capacity of a traditional spinning disk, it is able to operate with faster data transfer speeds and also contains no moving parts, which helps it to be more resistant against bumps, drops, and other kinds of damage. SSDs also receive less wear and tear than traditional hard drives, as they never come into contact with read and write heads. Additionally, the Opal storage specification helps to enhance drive security.
If you want to add external storage drives or other peripherals, the P310 features six USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and one 9-pin serial port. For users who wish to add additional components to the drive bays, there is one internal 3.5" drive bays and one external 5.25" drive bay. The integrated Intel HD Graphics P530 graphics controller delivers a sharp, clear picture, while also featuring two DisplayPort outputs and one VGA output. Whether you are listening to music, watching a movie, or playing a game, the integrated Realtek ALC662 audio controller outputs high definition audio and delivers higher fidelity than standard audio controllers.
The ThinkStation P310 Series Small Form Factor Workstation is powered by a 210W power supply that is 85% efficient and includes a 104-key USB keyboard, a USB mouse, and a power cord. While the installed operating system is Windows 7 Professional (64-bit), a Windows 10 Professional (64-bit) license is included.
