08/11/2011- Thecus has been working with Cavium to supply low-power processors with good performance to supply users with an option that is fast enough, but saves energy and doesn't bust your budget. When Cavium put out a new generation of their low-power ECONA processors with dual cores, Thecus was eager to get them to customers as soon as possible. Even with only one core operating, this processor was faster and more efficient than its predecessors and was part of what made the N2200PLUS a very attractive home NAS.
With N2200PLUS's all over the market, it was just a matter of time before they could reach their full potential. These processors were just waiting for the right moment, and, as soon as Cavium was ready, Thecus did everything necessary to take advantage of the latent power in these high-efficiency processors.
Thecus is now providing an upgrade from single- to dual-core for all Thecus N2200PLUS NAS in the form of a FREE firmware upgrade.
The N2200PLUS previously performed reading and writing tasks at a respectable 41MB/s and 23MB/s. These numbers are getting boosted to an incredible 67MB/s and 43MB/s! Opening up this additional core uses absolutely no more energy than before, so there is no downside to this whatsoever. All you get is more efficiency and speed at zero cost. Thecus is very proud to be able to offer this substantial performance upgrade completely free of charge.
