Note: Final Cut Pro X 10.3 (and later) supports file sharing using Samba on NAS
Access 10GbE networks over Thunderbolt with Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet (T2E)
As Apple® computers do not natively support 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Mac® users previously needed to purchase a Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet adapter to connect to high-speed Ethernet networks. The innovative Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet (T2E) allows computers without Ethernet ports (such as MacBook Pro®) to access 10GbE network resources over a Thunderbolt™ connection to the TVS-882BRT3. This saves users from having to buy adapters or converters and greatly streamlines the connectivity process.
Note: T2E transmission speed may be affected when using a virtual switch. QNAP aims to continue improving and optimizing T2E performance.
M.2 SATA 6Gb/s SSD cache expandability
The TVS-882BRT3 provides two M.2 SSD slots dedicated to caching for increasing IOPS performance. Using an SSD cache boosts overall system performance, and is perfect for improving the overall workflow of random IOPS-demanding applications such as virtualization. Qtier auto-tiering technology automatically moves frequently-used files to SSD and infrequently-used files to HDD for optimal storage performance.
PCIe slot for diversified storage scenarios
The TVS-882BRT3 provides three PCIe Gen. 3 slots. Two slots are preinstalled with dual-port Thunderbolt 3 cards, while another slot allows for a wide range of storage scenarios. You can install a 10GbE/ 40GbE NIC for network expansion, USB 3.1 10Gbps adapter, or a compatible Wi-Fi adapter to use the TVS-882BRT3 as a wireless access point.
4K HDMI output for an excellent audiovisual experience
The TVS-882BRT3 comes with three HDMI ports for using three monitors in either “duplicated” or “extended” desktop configuration.
