Don't you just love spare or backup computers? It's sad but true that I'm currently rocking an AMD quad-core and 4GB of DDR2 RAM thanks to my main desktop motherboard recently dieing after 4 years of long hard service.
In comes QNAP to make me feel really inadequate with its new AMD-powered TS-563 NAS. Sporting an "AMD Embedded G-Series quad-core 2.0GHz SoC processor and up to 16GB RAM," this 5-bay NAS was announced in a recently issued press release.
QNAP's senior director of marketing Dilip Ramachandran says that the AMD G-Series SOC has been chosen because it "offers a low power solution delivering high performance at attractive cost levels," with the release further explaining that this 64-bit AMD Embedded chip is coupled with SATA 6Gb/s support, 2x 1GbE LAN ports and more.
Capable of speeds up to 1,506 Mb/s through an expandable 2 x 10 GbE setup, this system also comes in 2GB and 8GB RAM models, all sporting DDR3.
