New Elkhart Lake Hardware for better lowcost NAS (in Q1/2021?)

Recommended Posts



eight PCIe 3.0 lanes sound good

2 x sata is a little low but vendors could add more

2.5GbE sounds nice but the driver is only in newer kernels and not as single driver source available, so i don't expect it to work for us

same goes for the gen 11 gpu, might not work with the "old" i915 we use, no ehl aka elkhart-lake firmware is used in this driver

the "In-Band ECC" sounds interesting, having ECC with normal ram's by using some of the ram for ecc (might cost performance but might be a great feature for nas)


lets see if synology makes a new ds921+ out of this

and just to confuse everyone there is also jasper lake with similar features?
