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 4K@ 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.

  • 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.

TVS-473e

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.

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.
