QNAP has introduced a new expansion card for PC and NAS systems supporting Windows 10 (1809 or later), Linux (stable kernel 4.20/5.x), Windows Server 2019 with QTS or QuTS hero for greater compatibility. (Windows and Linux require the Intel I225LM driver.) The QNAP QM2-2P2G2T PCIe card is now available to purchase directly from the QNAP online store priced at $187.
The QM2-2P2G2T features dual 2.5GBASE-T Multi-Gigabit (2.5G/1G/100M/10M) network ports to boost bandwidth-demanding tasks. M.2 SSD thermal sensors allow real-time temperature monitoring, with a quiet cooling module (heatsink and smart fan) to keep the SSDs running within optimal temperatures.
“The QM2-2P2G2T adds support for M.2 SSDs and 2.5GbE connectivity to your QNAP NAS. Combining M.2 SSD and 2.5GbE connectivity into one solution, the QM2 PCIe expansion card improves overall NAS performance by enabling SSD caching while providing an affordable upgrade path for adopting 2.5GbE networks.
