Do anyone uses AMD APU for NAS MB?

As usual: It depends.

First, DSM does not benefit of hw accelartion of the gpu. That means everything is de-/en-/transcoded by the cpu.

The CPU is qiet weak, but low resolution and low bitrade transcoding would be possible I guess. To compare, I had run a athlon 5350, that have the double of cores and a little highe frequency and transcoding of a 720p TV stream to 600p + 1500kbps causes 60-80% CPU load. A SD TV stream only 30 to 50 %.


I doubt that a E-350 would get along with HD-video.


I wouldn't concern the disk array speed, every low budget hardware is able to bring gigabit ethernet to its limits.
