Taipei, Taiwan, March 29, 2021 – QNAP® Systems, Inc., a leading computing, networking and storage solution innovator, today launched the QM2-2P2G2T PCIe card which adds M.2 SSD slots and 2.5GbE connectivity to a QNAP NAS or PC/server/workstation. NAS users can benefit from 2.5GbE connectivity, improve overall NAS performance by enabling SSD caching, and upgrade NAS storage capacity without occupying any 3.5-inch drive bays. PC/server/workstation users can increase their storage capacity while also boosting overall IOPS performance by offloading bandwidth-demanding tasks to SSDs to minimize application loading times.

“The QM2-2P2G2T represents QNAP’s commitment to providing comprehensive and budget-friendly solutions not only for QNAP NAS users but also for PC/workstation users. The QM2-2P2G2T is ideal for use in homes and workplaces to handle resource-demanding applications, such as inline video-editing and gaming, and is especially suited for Windows Server,” said Stanley Huang, Product Manager of QNAP.

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.
