QNAP’s new TVS-675 NAS is powered by a Zhaoxin KaiXian processor

The QNAP, TVS-675 is the first device we've seen with a Zhaoxin processor.

QNAP’s new six-bay TVS-675 NAS is the first that we’ve seen come powered by an octa-core processor from Zhaoxin, the Zhaoxin KaiXian KX-U6580 octa-core processor.

Zhaoxin isn’t a familiar name to those of us used to Intel and AMD. Based in China they have largely only been available domestically. Indeed, this appearance in the QNAP TVs-675 is their overseas debut.

In terms of performance, the benchmarks we were able to find online show the Zhaoxin KaiXian KX-U6580 being compared to an Intel Celeron J4105 Quad-Core processor and coming out only slightly ahead.


Looking inside the TVS-675

Apart from the choice of processor, the TVs-675 looks like a standard NAS.

The TVS-675 has six bays for both 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch drives, two SATA M.2 2280 slots or NVMe drives, and two PCIe 3.0 x4 slots for expansion cards, storage, and networking. It includes an HDMI 2.0 port that supports 4K/60 Hz output to a monitor or TV.

The dual 2.5GbE ports support Port Trunking for up to 5 Gbps transmission speeds, improving the performance of bandwidth-hungry applications such as large file transfers and fast backup/restoration.

Besides the Zhaoxin KaiXian KX-U6580 processor, it has 8GB DDR4 of RAM that is expandable up to 64GB (2 x 32GB).

Business users can also choose between QNAP’s QTS or QuTS hero operating systems. QuTS hero uses additional system resources to ensure an optimal environment for protecting business data.


Pricing and availability

There are a number of connectivity options available for the TVS-675.

The TVS-675 is priced at S$1,859 (enclosure only) with a three-year warranty. You can also purchase a warranty extension that extends your warranty coverage up to 5 years. It is available from Convergent Systems (S) Pte Ltd.
