QNAP Announces the Mustang-200 Computing Accelerator Card

QNAP Computing Expansion Card for NAS/PCs

QNAP is announcing their latest innovation called the Mustang-200. It looks like any common PCIe expansion card but it is actually a complete solution for accelerating storage systems. Whether on a PC or a NAS with an available PCIe 2.0 x4 slot, the Mustang-200 can improve performance equivalent to two NAS devices.

According to QNAP, in terms of performance, adding a Mustang-200 on a system with 12 x 4K IP cameras enables it to handle up to twice as much at 24 x 4K IP cameras.

What is Inside Each QNAP Mustang-200 Card?

The device features dual Intel CPU solution (with built-in GPU) on a single PCB. This processor (4) can be either a Core i7-7567U, Core i5-7267U, or a Celeron 3865U.

Each of these CPUs have dual SO-DIMM slots supporting up to 32GB of DDR4-2133 RAM (6). On the backside of the PCB are two M.2 2280 slots for PCIe SSDs with an aluminium alloy backplate acting as a heatsink (2). QNAP uses Intel 600P 512GB NVMe SSDs as standard (7).

Each individual CPU has a 10GbE network chip (5) with an independent IP. This allows users to connect to external networks using any network interface on the host NAS. Lastly, the entire system on a card comes with a heatsink and dual-fan active cooling solution (3) for thermal management. The entire card requires an additional 6-pin PCIe power connector to run.
