Breakthrough performance and outstanding connectivity with 10GbE, Thunderbolt 3, and M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD slots Powered by an 8th generation Intel® Core™ processor, the high-performance TVS-672XT NAS features both 10GBASE-T and Thunderbolt™ 3 high-bandwidth connectivity for tackling heavy workloads and smoothly transferring, displaying and editing 4K videos in real-time. With M.2 SSD support and the ability to install a graphics card, the TVS-672XT provides the ability to boost performance and create a scalable working environment for collaboration and high-speed file sharing. The TVS-672XT is driven by high-quality hardware that delivers optimum performance, comprehensive multimedia features, expandable storage capacity, and numerous other NAS functionalities to inspire greater creativity and accomplishments! High-speed Thunderbolt™ 3 with SMB protocol, allowing Mac® and Windows® users to collaborate on media editing. 5-speed 10GBASE-T RJ45 connectivity accelerates virtualization applications and file sharing across teams and devices. PCIe expandability allows the use of an entry-level graphics card to accelerate NAS video processing and GPU computing. Install M.2 PCIe (Gen 3 x2, 2 GB/s) NVMe SSDs (sold separately) to set up caching or storage pools, improving file access efficiency. 4K media playback and real-time transcoding; directly view creative works on an HDTV via HDMI 2.0 (4K @60Hz) output. Snapshots fully record system status and data, allowing you to protect files and data from accidental deletion and malware attacks. Fast and flexible Thunderbolt™ 3 and 10GBASE-T connectivity The TVS-672XT adopts the powerful 8th generation Intel® Core™ i3 8100T quad-core 3.1 GHz processor with 8 GB dual-channel DDR4 memory (upgradable to 32 GB) to deliver outstanding performance. It provides two Gigabit and one 5-speed 10GBASE-T port (10G/5G/2.5G/1G/100M), supports SATA 6Gb/s drives, and features AES-NI encryption for delivering high performance while also maintaining the security of your data. You can also connect USB Type-C devices through the Thunderbolt™ 3 ports to transfer large media files across devices, providing you with a more efficient workflow. Extend NAS functionality with a graphics card and other PCIe devices The TVS-672XT features two PCIe Gen 3 slots (the first slot is pre-installed with a Thunderbolt™ 3 card) that allow for the usage of various expansion cards to expand application potential. Graphics cards Accelerate NAS video processing and empower GPGPU tasks. GPUs can also be passed-through to virtual machines. QM2 M.2 SSD/10GbE cards Add M.2 SSD caching or 10GbE (10GBASE-T) connectivity to the NAS for optimized performance and bandwidth. 10GbE/ 40GbE adapters Enable lightning-fast throughput for bandwidth-demanding tasks such as virtualization, massive data transmission, and fast backup/restoration. Wireless network cards Use the QNAP QWA-AC2600 wireless adapter with WirelessAP Station to transform the TVS-672XT into a convenient wireless base station, allowing network resources of the NAS to be shared with multiple devices. Obtain performance benefits from M.2 SSD caching Besides using 2.5-inch SSDs for caching, you can utilize the two M.2 SSD slots built in to the TVS-672XT for installing PCIe (Gen 3 x2, 2 GB/s) NVMe SSDs with 2280 form factors (M.2 SSDs are sold separately).
