[] Lenovo Announces ThinkVision P32u LCD: 32-inch, 4K, TB3 with Daisy Chaining

Ahead of CES, Lenovo is introducing its new ThinkVision P32u professional-grade display. The latest monitor from the company offers an Ultra HD resolution, a wide color gamut, as well as Thunderbolt 3 with daisy chaining, allowing users to to connect further TB3 devices and monitors downstream of the P32u.

Like most professional displays nowadays, the ThinkVision P32u is equipped with an IPS panel featuring an antiglare coating. The latter measures 32”, has a 4K UHD (3840×1920) resolution, a 300 nits brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, a 6 ms GtG response time, 178°/178° viewing angles as well as a 60 Hz maximum refresh. The monitor covers 99.5% of the AdobeRGB color space, which means that its capabilities exceed those required to display 100% of the sRGB spectrum. The company also notes that the monitor supports a “multi-color space capability”, but it's not clear right now whether that capability means that the monitor can display content in different color spaces simultaneously side-by-side in PBP/PiP modes (like some other professional displays), or whether it means something else entirely.

The specs of the ThinkVision P32u hardly look special for a professional monitor as there are numerous 4K models with 99% AdobeRGB coverage for designers and photographers these days. Moreover, its brightness and contrast may be considered too low by the target audience. The key feature of the Lenovo ThinkVision P32u appears to be its connectivity. In addition to the usual DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.0 inputs, the new monitor has a Thunderbolt 3 input and a Thunderbolt output that can be used to daisy chain another ThinkVision P32u (or a different TB3-enabled monitor), a high-end external storage sub-system, or any other TB3 device. While the Thunderbolt 3 technology has been on the market for 2.5 years now, the number of displays supporting TB3 daisy chaining is limited, so the feature will be an indisputable trump of the ThinkVision P32u. Meanwhile, Lenovo does not forget about widespread USB Type-A peripherals and the new display features a quad-port USB 3.0 hub (one connector supports charging).

When it comes to physical features and ergonomics, the ThinkVision P32 has rather thin bezels and comes with a detachable stand that offers height, tilt, swivel and pivot adjustments along with a red cable management bracket.
