So I've just noticed that the DS3612xs has been formally acknowledged and that its specs page is up for review.
Am I correct in reading that the sole hardware improvement brought forward by the 2012 variant is the ability to upgrade onboard RAM to less than the original model?
The specific CPU isn't being listed so just based on specs (and with URLs for confirmation),
DS3611xs Memory : DDR3 2GB ECC RAM (Expandable, up to 8GB)
DS3612xs Memory : DDR3 2GB ECC RAM (Expandable, up to 6GB)
No USB 3.0, no eSATA, no performance improvement, no power improvement. Perhaps an improvement in SRP? As in decrease?
