Most of the platform we have tested this year have been 10Gbe, so we don't have any comparable platforms for this review. That said we run through the normal testing starting with single client NASPT. Playback does quite well peaking at 108 MB/s while record reaches 118 MB/s File copy to the NAS reaches 119 MB/s while from touched 80 MB/s.
