The TS-473 is powered by a high-performance and energy-efficient AMD R-Series CPU and provides two PCIe slots for greater functionality. You can install a QNAP QM2 expansion card to add M.2 SSD caching/10GbE connectivity a compatible wireless card to use the TS-473 as a wireless access point and an entry-level graphics card to boost system performance for 4K video performance. The TS-473 allows you to flexibly deploy a wide range of applications with a more affordable budget.
Two PCIe Gen3 x4 slots support QM2 cards, 10GbE adapters, or wireless network cards.
Supports entry-level graphics card, allowing for 4K video transcoding and output.
Dual M.2 SATA 6 Gb/s SSD slots allow for setting up caching or storage pools, improving file access efficiency.
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.
Snapshots fully record system status and data. If files are accidentally deleted or modified, you can quickly restore the data from a snapshot.
