With each platform release from Intel, NAS vendors go to work releasing a full lineup of new SKUs to take advantage of the new tech. With the release of the Braswell in the mid part of 2015, we now have all the major players with a solution based on the 14nm process.
The N2810 was launched back in January of this year and is planted in the latest architecture from Intel. This solution like many others is now taking advantage of Braswell, Intel's latest chip manufactured on the 14nm process. The N2810 has at its heart a dual-core solution paired with DDR3 memory and 4GB of eMMC from Micron. This NAS is firmly rooted in the SOHO space and even leans more toward the casual user that wants both storage and media capabilities. Furthering this is the availability of Plex and Kodi App support out of the box while backup chores can be left to Dropbox, Amazon S3, and Elephant Drive while anti-virus details are maintained by Intel Security, formerly McAfee.
If we look a little closer at specifications, we find the Intel Celeron N3050 at the heart of this platform with 2GB of DDR3 next to it. Memory is expandable to 8GB in a single stick configuration. Connectivity options include two-gigabit LAN ports on the rear of the unit along with three USB 3.0 with two located on the rear. HDMI is made available for those of you wanting to use this as a media center, and internally we have room for two 3.5" SATA drives. Power is supplied via an external brick unit that allows up to 48 watts and finally yet importantly, this NAS support Thecus OS 7.
