TVS-872XT vs TVS-872X vs ts-h973ax

I see Qnap’s TVS-872x will be available soon.
In your opinion how does it stack up against the TVS-872xt (I wouldn’t make use of the thunderbolts anyways) and the h973ax?

The main difference between 72XT and 72X is the absence of the Thunderbolt card, slower CPU and half of the RAM capacity.  Qnap h973ax is a very different kind of NAS. Cpu is comparably similar to i3, but not multimedia friendly. Qnap h973ax is made for file storage and VMs (ECC memory support). It also supports faster SSD- NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 via U.2 bays. Even though it has 10GbE- it is very disadvantageous to not have a PCIe slot for future upgrades.
