Integrated Radeon™ R7 GPU for 4K video playback.
Two PCIe slots support 10GbE adapters, QM2 cards, USB 3.1 10Gbps cards, or wireless network cards.
Use the NAS as a PC by attaching a keyboard, mouse, and HDMI display.
Qtier™ auto-tiering technology and SSD caching enable 24/7 optimized storage efficiency.
Scalable storage supporting virtualization, containerized apps, centralized storage, backup, sharing, and disaster recovery.
RAID 50/60 is recommended for NAS with over 10 disks to strike a balance between capacity, protection, and performance.
AMD Embedded R-Series SoC built for speed
AMD Embedded R-Series SoC uses "Excavator" x86 CPU cores, and supports AMD Radeon™ 3rd-generation GCN and DDR4. The AMD RX-421BD APU, featuring an integrated Radeon™ R7 series Graphics Processing Unit, provides the TVS-473e with the high-end model of the AMD R-Series family. The TVS-473e also provides two PCIe Gen3 x4 expansion slots for boosting the potential for 10GbE network performance.
AMD R-Series quad-core APU, up to 64GB RAM
Equipped with a next-gen AMD R-Series RX-421BD quad-core 2.1 GHz APU (Turbo Core up to 3.4 GHz) with up to 64GB dual channel DDR4 RAM, the TVS-473e enables lightning-fast multi-tasking with low power consumption for up to 1106 MB/s throughput with a 10GbE configuration. With a hardware-accelerated encryption engine with AES-NI, the TVS-473e also provides unmatched encryption performance in its class (up to 1091 MB/s with AES 256-bit full NAS volume encryption) to boost system performance, security, and ensuring the safety of sensitive business data stored in the NAS.
Top-class hardware engineering
The sturdy and feature-packed hardware bolsters overall system performance. Coupled with the flexible and expandable architecture, the TVS-473e can fulfill diversified application needs.
Expands NAS potential with dual PCIe slots
The TVS-473e features a pair of PCIe (Gen3 x4) slots, allowing for installing optional single/dual-port 10GbE NICs to accelerate applications that demand higher bandwidth such as virtualization, media workflows, and backup/restoration tasks for an ever-growing amount of data; or a USB 3.1 Gen2 (10Gb/s) expansion card for transferring large media files to and from USB storage. You can also insert QM2 cards or wireless network cards to extend NAS functionality.
Greater efficiency with SSD caching and 10GbE connectivity
The TVS-473e supports the innovative QM2 PCIe card that allows for adding up to two M.2 SSDs. You can configure SSD caching, or create a RAID 5 tiered storage along with the two M.2 SSDs in the NAS*. As these M.2 SSDs will not occupy any 3.5-inch drive bays, the QM2 card allows you to maximize both your storage capacity and performance. There are also QM2 cards that include 10GbE 10GBASE-T connectivity to provide SSD caching with high-speed network connectivity on a single card.
