COMPUTEX 2017 | QNAP announces the world's first AMD Ryzen NAS
The new AMD Ryzen processors seem to be able to take back a lot of lost niches, also conquering new areas, as proven by the world's first NAS to use such a chip. Dubbed TS-x77, this new storage accessory for businesses has been announced by QNAP Products at COMPUTEX and should hit the market in a few months.
According to the official press release, "The TS-x77 is designed as a high-performance, highly-capable tiered storage geared for I/O intensive and virtualization applications, and also supports AMD Radeon™ and NVIDIA® graphics cards to satisfy resource-demanding video editing and playback."
QNAP TS-x77 will hit the market with three models (6, 8, and 12-bay ones), the list of processor options including both quad and six-core Ryzen 5 chips, as well as octa-core Ryzen 7 processors. The TS-x77 also features up to 64 GB DDR4 RAM, two M.2 slots for cache acceleration or high-performance storage pools, as well as PCIe Gen.3 slots for 40 GbE network adapters, NVMe SSDs, graphics cards, or USB 3.1 expansion cards.
QNAP has some pre-release units on display at COMPUTEX, where the TS-x77 will be found until June 3 at stand J217. This new product is expected to hit the market in Q3 2017.
