After a long hiatus, I managed to get my hands-on one of the latest appliances from QNAP, a six-bay NAS, but not in the standard form factor one would expect. Instead, this solution uses four 3.5" bays and two 2.5" bays, but that's not all.
The TVS x82 series covers quite a range of appliances including a 12, 8 and the six bay we have in house. These are all planted on the Intel Skylake platform and use an H series chipset. In using a desktop platform for this appliance, QNAP has opened an entire world of possibilities with this NAS including the ability to use a dedicated GPU if you go with the 450W PSU model. Adding to that functionality, this solution is ready for your 10 and 40GBe NICs and can also handle expansion for USB 3.1. These capabilities are being served up for businesses, professionals, and some enthusiasts looking for a purpose-built unit for tiered storage.
The best way to show what this solution has to offer is to look at the graphic above; QNAP has packed this NAS with high-level components, and that starts with dual m.2 functionality at the top next to full height DDR4 memory slots and for our sample a Core i3-6100 processor. Again with the PCIe expansion slots, you can fit any number of options into the chassis while the rear panel will give you plenty of connectivity with four Gigabit Ethernet ports, three HDMI port along with built-in speakers.
With all of the above, the QNAP TVS-682 with Core i3-6100 and 8G of memory is holding an MSRP of $1299.99 with a two-year warranty.
