usb 3.1 gen 2 or Thunderbolt Z390 work?


I'm curious if a Z390 motherboard with onboard USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps) or onboard Thunderbolt 3 (32Gbps) would work for full speed or faster than USB 3.0 with ,file transfers in Xpenology?

Or possibly even an add on card would work?



This hypothetical build would have all SSD's for an array

Using baremetal or otherwise.

I should have asked this question a totally different way.


I am going to Swap out the motherboard in my Xpen 918+ with new one.

The new board is Z390 Phantom Gaming-ITX/ac  seen Here


My question is: Will I be able to use any of the features below that are included on the motherboard with baremetal 918+ Xpenology 1.04b?

  • 1x Intel Thunderbolt™ 3 Type-C
  • 2 Ultra M.2 (PCIe Gen3 x4)
  • 4x USB 3.1 Gen2 10Gb/s 





Can Anyone help answer this?

If this is a ridiculous question tell me so!

I dont think there is any Synology with a Thunderbolt 3 so your normal DSM probably doesnt even have those drivers in it.


You have a better chance with 40Gbe NIC - ConnectX-4 Lx EN MCX4131A-BCAT


You can find all the compatible NICs on Synology's Compatibility list:
