This solution is the world’s first NAS device to support Thunderbolt 4 (40 Gbps). The equipment includes two corresponding ports through which you can connect various peripheral devices with high data exchange rates.

The novelty is designed for four 3.5- or 2.5-inch drives with SATA 3.0 interfaces. In addition, two M.2 NVMe PCIe solid state modules can be installed.

The memory is equipped with an HDMI 2.0 interface, with which images in 4K format can be output at 60 frames per second. Real-time transcoding functions have been implemented.

The price and timing of the launch of the TS-464T4 model for sale have not been disclosed.
