Hi, given that all possible configurations of the P53 have been known, anybody knows if they are have the same cooling system or do higher end models with more power CPU and GPU have better cooling system?

If it is similar to other P5x systems, there are different fans depending on video options.

I have no direct experience. Maybe someone else can add something.

As best as I can tell from looking at the ThinkPad P53 Hardware Maintenance Manual, there is only one model of thermal heatsink. However, you may have to wait until the BOM (build of materials) parts list is published in order to be certain.

Thanks. Which model has heatsink? Given the powerful components, what do other models use to deal with the heat? Asked Lenovo yesterday (July 30) when P53 would be out. The agent said they had no idea!?

I think all models have a heatsink and fan. That is a pretty standard part of any computer these days.
Other models have different heatsinks and fans designed to fit inside their chassis and remove heat.
The ThinkPad P53 was just listed on the US web site at https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/thinkpad/thinkpad-p/P53/p/22WS2WPWP53. Because it is a brand new listing, all the different models are not yet aviailable, and the customization (CTO, or configure to own) option is not available yet, either.
