ASUSTOR announced the launch of two new NAS models, both based on the new Apollo Lake platform. The new AS3202T and AS6404T come with a dual-core and quad-core Intel Celeron processor and run the latest ADM 3.0 firmware.
The processor upgrade allows the NAS devices to perform 30 percent better at both CPU and GPU performance when compared to predecessor types. The two-bay AS3202T system features a dual-core 2GHz processor and 2GB RAM while the AS3404T comes with a quad-core 1.5GHz processor. Both systems feature a dual Gigabit Ethernet setup with link aggregation support, and they also come with USB 3.0 Type-A and Type-C ports.
While a network throughput up to 216.14 MB/s and 218.25 MB/s read and write is nice, HDMI 2.0 output at 4K 60Hz is another great feature. Use the system as a multimedia station and get the most out of your TV’s capabilities, and be able to connect any generation USB drive, including Type-C. Wake on WAN is another useful feature, allowing you to wake the NAS from sleep states remotely, no matter where you are.
“The AS6302T and AS6404T are positioned as ASUSTOR’s mid-level flagship models for 2017. We have carefully selected Intel’s latest Apollo Lake processor for use on these models for their increases in comprehensive performance and energy efficiency when compared with previous generation models, “ said Johnny Chen, Product Manager at ASUSTOR. “Also, the addition of the new Wake-on-WAN function offers added power saving and security flexibility. Users can combine this function with ASUSTOR’s system sleep mode S3 and have their NAS on standby, while only powering it on when they need to. It addition to saving power, this can also prevent hackers from accessing the device.”
