Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The Lenovo ThinkStation P620 is a workstation kitted out with a Threadripper Pro processor. With the right parts, it's easily one of the most performant machines on the market. But the bloated price and top-end components are only useful in a narrow field of tasks.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful 64-core, 128-thread processor

Sentiment Score[*] 82%
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
Lenovo's ThinkStation P620 is the first to use AMD's new Threadripper Pro line of processors. With a single CPU providing up to 64 processor cores, this full-size tower can outmuscle even dual-CPU workstations. The P620's expandability, serviceability, and independent software vendor (ISV) certifications crown it a worthy alternative.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful enough for single- and dual-CPU workstations
  • High-quality build quality
  • Supports up to 64 processor cores
Cons[**]
  • Lacks independent software vendor (ISV) certifications
