GPU-accelerated computing
Graphics cards are optimized for graphical calculations and transformations, but require significantly more power than other hardware. The TS-1673AU-RP supports entry-level low-profile NVIDIA® GeForce® graphics cards (such as the GT 1030 or GT 1050) that do not require additional power. Installing a graphics card can boost performance of applications such as video editing, 4K video transcoding, imaging processing in QTS and the performance of virtual machines via GPU passthrough.

NOTE:
1. Supported video formats depend on the hardware and software specifications of the devices. Playback capability and quality may vary due to factors including the original file formats/quality, hardware and software limitations, and output devices.
2. GPU support for QTS only applies to NVIDIA graphics cards. GPU Passthrough for virtual machines is supported by AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards.
3. When Virtualization Station uses graphics cards, the TS-1673AU-RP will temporarily stop hardware transcoding acceleration for QTS (and vice versa).
4. Always consult the Compatibility List before purchasing or attempting to install a graphics card into the TS-1673AU-RP.


Accelerate IOPS performance with SSD Caching
Adding an SSD cache to the TS-1673AU-RP is an easy way to increase IOPS performance and reducing storage volume latency. It is perfect for IOPS-demanding applications (including databases and virtualization) and can significantly improve overall workflows. You can launch, stop, or change settings to meet your needs at any moment without shutting down the system.

Optimum Performance and Reliability
The TS-1673AU-RP supports advanced business features to provide maximized efficiency, performance, and to ensure round-the-clock services.
