“We chose the powerful AMD R-Series APU for the new TVS-x73 series as it incorporates exceptional CPU and AMD Radeon™ R7 Graphics performance, delivering a high-performance and energy-efficient NAS solution,” said Y.T. Lee, Vice President of QNAP, adding “Featuring the latest QTS 4.3 operating system, the TVS-x73’s built-in USB 3.1 10Gbps connectivity and the potential for 10GbE expandability are a further boost for performance-conscious organizations and professionals.”

“We are pleased to continue our partnership with QNAP in providing high-performance NAS solutions for the Small and Medium Business (SMB) market,” said Colin Cureton, Director of Product Management & Marketing, Enterprise Solutions Business Unit at AMD. “With its exceptional speed and graphics performance with low power consumption, the AMD Embedded R-Series SOC is the highest-performance AMD embedded processor to date and promises to be a game-changer in the high-end SMB NAS market segment.”

 Built with a state-of-the-art metal design and topped off with a stylish gold finish, the business-class TVS-x73 series is available in 4, 6, and 8-bay models.
