I suspect that it is single-core, since they probably would state the dual-core explicitly...

Anyone more info about the processor? Single or dual? One big + is the 1GB DDR3

It is single core and use Atom D425. If you looks up in Intel web site you will know the specification of the processor. D425 can support DDR3 up to 4G RAM and I am going to change mine to because 4G DDR3 is quite affordable. :D

Thank you. How do you know this? And how do you know if it's a replaceable module? Would be great! But 4 GB? Do you use this amount of memory?

Is it a complete line up Synology comes with?

IMHO also nice specs and price!
What should I choose?

Hmm, interesting... so USB 3.0 is coming to Synology boxes.

No expansion on DS212+ with DX510 again? I hate marketing.

That looks like a nice machine ... if the DS212+ has floating point (=can do transcoding) it would be fantastic. Maybe the CPU is an ARM and not ATOM, but at any rate they can come with floating point or without.

Using only 18 Watt (versus 710+ / 712+ using 27 Watt) in operation, this is indeed good news. At any rate, the DS71x+ series are more powerful (with Link Aggregation for doubling the read/write speed) and all the fancy stuff.

To me it seems the advertised 712+ models only support USB 2.0 ... but maybe Synology is implementing USB 3.0 and that's the reason for the postponed introduction?

I will be buying a new Diskstation... soon. :)

Because I have bought it and use it to replace my retired DS207+. I saw this replacement RAM module when I open its case and note it is a 1G DDR3 SODIMM. Coinidently, I have 1 spare 2G DDR3 SODIMM so I immediately replace it to try and prove it is working.

Nevertheless, I don't have 4G DDR3 on hand yet though I look up Intel web site to search D425's specification to learn its maximum support capacity is 4GB. :D

DS712+ has a dual core cpu so what about live transcoding of video files now ? (possible / not possible)

Interesting, the 212+ with its 2.0 Ghz CPU is better than the 712+ with only 1.8GHz

Why is 212+ better? Only because of USB 3.0?

As I said the 212+ is 2 GHz

@pz1
Do you really think the performance just depends on the GHz? This was general thinking in the Pentium 4 era. But since Core 2, everbody should have noted, that GHz is only half the truth.

The DS212+ may have more GHz than the DS712+, but the CPU of the DS712+ is significantly faster, because of its architecture.

It's not an Atom, so the comparison of the rates is not valid.
