Powerful performance

The high core count of the 4th Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor increases the performance of the ThinkSystem ST650 V3 by 59% over previous generations.

Combining the processing power with the added speed and bandwidth of the latest DDR5 memory and PCIe Gen 5, the ST650 V3 is ready to tackle virtualization and private cloud workloads.

It also offers high-performance computing power inside or outside a traditional data center.

Expandable capabilities

As your workloads evolve, so should your server. Adding agility with ease to your IT Infrastructure enables a private cloud or virtualized environment to optimize workloads as needed.

The highly configurable ST650 V3 tower server allows you to set up your IT infrastructure to meet your unique demands.

With support for up to 9 PCIe Gen 4/Gen 5 slots and 32 drives with multiple drive technologies, the ST650 V3 can be configured to your unique infrastructure needs.

And with XClarity Software Suite to provide innovative centralized management, you can easily manage your infrastructure as your business evolves.

Faster insights and reliability

The ThinkSystem ST650 V3 speeds insights with 8 single-width (SW) or 4 double-width (DW) or a combination of 4 SW and 4 DW GPUs. This GPU-rich tower server maximizes capabilities with the ability to process large blocks of data in parallel. This is ideal for video creation and editing along with applications which require quick analysis of large blocks of data.

It also includes validated and pre-validated solutions that are designed for reliability and stability.

Ideal for remote installations, the ST650 V3 provides enterprise performance, faster insights, and reliability either in-rack or as a stand-alone server.

Comprehensive Security

We design every ThinkSystem server with security in mind. This includes the ThinkSystem ST650 V3 which contains Lenovo ThinkShield security software. ThinkShield is a comprehensive end-to-end approach to security from development to supply chain and the full life cycle of the device. It also offers additional physical security technologies which include the lockable security bezel ideal for safety in remote installations.

Integrated IT Management

Lenovo XClarity Controller is the management hardware engine inside every ThinkSystem server, and XClarity Administrator centralizes the management of your ThinkSystem and ThinkAgile infrastructure.

With Redfish APIs and XClarity integrators, you can easily integrate the Lenovo infrastructure into higher-level IT applications. Lenovo servers continue to be the industry's #1 most reliable*.
