The TVS-473e is powered by a high-end AMD R-Series APU that incorporates an exceptional CPU with AMD Radeon™ R7 Graphics performance, delivering a high-performance and energy-efficient NAS solution. Built with a state-of-the-art metal design and topped off with a stylish gold finish, the highly-capable TVS-473e provides PCIe expandability, the unique USB QuickAccess port, HDMI [email protected] 30Hz output, and 4K H.264 video decoding and encoding acceleration for an optimum audiovisual experience.
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.
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.
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.
Note: USB 3.1 performance may vary depending on hardware/software limitations and usage environment.
Tested in QNAP Labs. Figures may vary by environment. Test environment:
OS: QTS 4.3; Volume type: RAID 5; 4 x Intel SSD DC S3500 240G with LAN-10G2SF-MLX 10GbE SFP+ NIC
Client PC:Intel Core i7-4770 CPU @ 3.40 GHz CPU; WD 1TB WD10EZEX; LAN-10G2SF-MLX 10GbE SFP+ NIC; Microsoft Windows 10 64bit; IOmeter 20-workers, 1-outstanding I/Os, 30-second ramp up time, 3-minute run time, max disk size 67108864
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.
*Note: M.2 SSDs for NAS and QM2 cards are sold separately.
SSD cache with Qtier™ optimization for around-the-clock acceleration
The TVS-473e features SSD caching, and also supports optional M.2 SATA 6Gb/s SSDs. Using an SSD cache boosts overall system performance, and is perfect for improving the overall workflow of random IOPS demanding applications such as virtualization. QNAP’s Qtier™ Technology empowers the TVS-473e with auto tiering that further helps continuously optimize storage efficiency across M.2 SSD, 2.5-inch SSD, and high-capacity SATA drives with around-the-clock acceleration. The new Qtier™ 2.0 features IO-awareness that empowers SSD-tiered storage with a cache-like reserved space to handle burst I/O in real time, greatly maximizing the advantages of SSD.
Note: M.2 SSD is optional. As M.2 SSD operations can easily generate excessive heat, it is recommended to install a heatsink (from QNAP or a third-party provider) on the M.2 SSD.
QTS – Intelligent, intuitive and creative NAS operating system
With modularized multiple applications and functions, QTS enhances management efficiency, personal productivity, multimedia, and much more, making your NAS experience easier, efficient, and more flexible! The new Qboost provides a NAS optimization tool that helps accelerate applications, free up system resources, and schedule applications. The built-in App Center with hundreds of install-on-demand apps realizes far more extensive NAS functionality. QTS breaks the barriers of devices, platforms, and geography to bring you optimized cloud experiences and incorporates advanced features.
Fast data digitalization, filing and searching to multiply your productivity
The TVS-473e is a highly-efficient data storage center with multiple productivity apps. OCR Converter extracts text from images, helping to facilitate file organization, editing, and searching. Qfiling automates file organization – simply determine filing conditions, set a schedule, and files will be organized and archived based on your settings. The Qsirch full-text search tool features quick file searching and provides Qsirch Helper extension for Google Chrome™ and Mozilla Firefox® to search for files on your NAS when using Google Search™, enabling huge productivity boosts that greatly reduce the time spent looking for files on the NAS.
Flexible and economical storage expansion
You need an easy solution to increase storage capacity when running out of space. QNAP provides several ways to expand your NAS storage as needed to accommodate data or business growth.
Use VJBOD (Virtual JBOD) to expand your storage capacity by using the unused storage of another QNAP NAS. Up to 8 QNAP NAS can be mounted as local disks on the TVS-473e.
Upgrade RAID Capacity
Hot swap lower-capacity drives with higher-capacity drives so that your QNAP NAS can grow with your business.
