QNAP launches AMD-powered TS-x73U NAS
QNAP Systems has just announced the launch of a new AMD-powered NAS solution, namely the business-class TS-x73U series. According to the company's Product Manager Jason Hsu, this new product offers 10 GbE readiness and "the excellent power of the R-Series CPU" for a reasonable price, targeting budget-conscious organizations.
The hardware specs of this new storage solution for businesses include the RX-421ND quad-core processor by AMD with a 2.1 GHz base speed and up to 3.4 GHz boost, two M.2 SATA 6Gb/s SSD slots, as well as a pre-installed dual-port 10GbE SFP+ network card. The six models available offer 8, 12, and 16-bay setups with single or redundant power supplies. They also feature 8 GB to 64 GB DDR4 memory (all models can be upgraded to 64 GB), as well as 4XGigabit LAN, 2XUSB 3.0, and 4XUSB 2.0 ports.
The QNAP TS-x73U series NAS is available via the company's retailers worldwide and the prices vary. Those interested to expand the amount of storage space can use QNAP expansion enclosures such as REXP-1620U-RP, REXP-1220U-RP, UX-1200U-RP, or UX-800U-RP, or with the help of VJBOD.
