TVS-x72XT announcement (TVS-472XT, TVS-672XT, TVS-872XT)

TVS-x72XT has been announced today on 27th SEP 2018.  What we know is that it will be The Thunderbolt™ NAS with 10GbE connectivity built on board and PCIe expansion slots.

This might be long waited NAS to exist somewhere right in the middle of available Thunderbolt3 range.

There is s clear gap in the Thunderbolt range. The cheapest option is around 1000GBP mark and the top of the range units cost over 2000GBP.

What the hardware specs to expect?

It will be Intel Pentium, i3, i5 and maybe they will decide to add also i7 later, but not now.

Also looks like it will feature USB3.1 gen2 on the front panel.

Intel Core i 8th gen processor. Possible options:

  • Pentium Gold G5400T 3.1GHz
  • Intel Core i3 8100T 4-Core 3.1GHz
  • Intel Core i5 8400T 6-Core 1.7GHz

If they will decide to add i7 series too, this would be what to expect:

  • Intel Core i7 8700 6-Core
  • Intel Core i7 8700K 6-Core

Can I replace Pentium CPU with Core i7?

I bet you can! All of these three CPU feature the same socket – FCLGA1151. There is limited space for the cooling fan, but it should still work.

Compatible i7 would be 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-8700K Processor

Or 7th Gen Intel Core i7-7700T
