D30: Standard dual-CPU workstation workhorse

D30. Extreme speed.
Powerful graphics. Cool and quiet.

Designed to tackle the biggest challenges, the D30 delivers the ultimate in performance and expandability, and comes with Windows® 7 Professional as the standard OS. You can process more tasks faster with the latest generation of up to eight core Intel® Xeon® processors and supporting discrete Quadro and Tesla graphics technology from NVIDIA. From 3D product design and animation, to simulation and visualization, to heavy-duty number-crunching and software development, the D30 is designed for those who need to be more productive.

The D30 is designed to be reliable and to make your work environment pleasant, with a unique tri-channel cooling system that keeps things cool on the inside and quiet on the outside. And the D30 allows you to multitask more than ever, supporting up to 16 DIMMS and 1600-MHz memory performance. It also proves that high performance can come in a green package, offering up to 90-percent power efficiency and ENERGY STAR 5.0 certification.

D Series

The D30 supports up to two Intel® Xeon® E5 2600 series processors with Turbo Boost Technology, and comes preloaded with Windows® 7 Professional. It supports up to 256GB of Error Correcting Code (ECC) memory @ 1600MHz, and up to an 1120W power supply for all the juice your key components need to maintain peak performance.


We’ve partnered with NVIDIA® to deliver professional-grade workstation graphics solutions. D30 graphics automatically detect what applications are running to optimize best performance. Combined with HD 7.1 audio, the ThinkStation D30 workstation includes a range of NVIDIA® NVS and Quadro® options.

The ThinkStation D30 workstation is certified by multiple leading ISVs, ensuring maximum performance and reliability. The certification also allows support from ISVs if software operational issues occur. The unique thermal design of the ThinkStation workstation is engineered for maximum cool air delivery to key components, reducing the risk of hardware failure.

  • Intel® vPro with Active Management Technology (AMT) allows IT personnel to access, diagnose, repair, manage and secure workstations from remote locations, saving time and reducing maintenance costs.
  • Operating noise level of 24db idle makes it nearly undetectable.
  • Tool-less interior enables quick and easy maintenance and upgrades of key components.
  • Front-access media ports with illuminated I/O icons allow you to easily connect devices to the right I/O ports, even in dark environments.

While environmentally friendly may not immediately come to mind when thinking about a high-performance, 1120W workstation, the ThinkStation D30 workstation is a green machine. It features several environmental ratings, including EPEAT® Gold, GREENGUARD ®, ENERGY STAR, and certified 85% efficient power supply. Plus the D30 is made from 27% post-consumer content and it meets RoHS standards.
