sorry had previously added that i am after a birthday nas but struggling with to get an intel or amd as i am going to be transcoding alot if shows to my phone/ipad this is my first big nas and wanting to make sure i get the correct one to work with plex. i have about £1000 to spend just on the nas no hdd needed
Did I mean the TS-453B ? Seams to only get a cpu score of 2130 that barley one transcoded stream
The Passmark score is indeed low but it’s capable of hardware transcoding due the the GPU in the CPU.
Processor: Intel® Celeron® J3455 quad-core 1.5 GHz, burst up to 2.3 GHz
If you search in the Synology forum for DS918+ or the DS818+ (any of those with the same processor) you can see the results of the fairly extensive testing done by the community.
