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?

It would be nice if Syno released a unit with one of those Embedded CPUs that has Xe GPU and added transcoding.

synology is not writing the whole code, they would use the kernel driver if present and then ffmpeg so if you want a to estimate you would need to check it that Xe functionality is supported by ffmpeg and if there is a driver already in the kernel
