The Lenovo ThinkPad P1 Gen 7 Workstation is the world's first to receive new LPCAMM2 memory modules from Micron. The new memory format is 64% smaller than DDR5 SO-DIMM and 58% more energy efficient thanks to the use of LPDDR5X memory.

The ThinkPad P1 Gen 7 is the only model in the P1 lineup equipped with Micron LPCAMM2 memory with a maximum capacity of 64GB. Although SO-DIMM can provide greater capacity, with LPCAMM2, the ThinkPad laptop gains the advantage of LPDDR5X, which operates at a speed of 7467 MT/s. The CAMM2 standard officially supports up to 128GB, so the maximum memory capacity of laptops may change in the future.

The ThinkPad P1 Gen 7 features a 16" OLED display with a 16:10 aspect ratio and an Intel Core Ultra 9 185H (Meteor Lake) processor. It comes with an NVIDIA graphics card up to RTX 3000 Ada or with integrated Intel graphics.

The Micron LPCAMM2 format memory differs significantly from traditional SO-DIMM memory. It allows memory modules to take up much less space in the laptop's chassis and enables the use of interchangeable LPDDR5X for better speed and lower power consumption.

Memory with a speed of 7500 MT/s provides 1.3 times greater bandwidth than standard JEDEC DDR5 SO-DIMM. One module uses the full 128-bit memory controller bus, meaning one LPCAMM2 functions as a dual-channel solution. This means that only one module is needed for maximum memory performance.

The new memory format originates from the CAMM standard invented by Dell. JEDEC later made the standard universal under the name CAMM2. Since then, Samsung and Micron have created their own CAMM2 modules under different names, such as LPCAMM2 (non-"regular" CAMM2 solutions do not use LPDDR5X memory).

Higher bandwidth and other features make LPCAMM2 a promising successor to SO-DIMM and LPDDR solutions that have dominated portable devices for decades. It is no wonder that it has attracted the attention of a major laptop manufacturer.
