    how much will these go for? will they add benefit to gaming systems too?

    Very expensive. 3826 for the top end and 925 on the bottom end

    Well considering the hardware that’s under the hood of the top one you can see why they cost so much
    • Mustang-200-i7-1T/32G-R10: Interface: PCIe 2.0 x4, Intel Core i7-7567U CPU 3.5GHz x2, Intel 600P 512GB SSD (per CPU), 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 (per CPU)

    I would like to see something like this as a barebone.. just the card without cpu's and RAM, so you can play around with it alot more :D

    So why are we building full rigs again when theoretically one such add in card could replace entry level PCs alltogether if they add one or two display connectors?
    Building a normal rig with the hardware that here comes on a graphics card sized PCB is more likely waste in many cases.

    QNAP has been developing que a few interesting products as of late, and this looks like one of them. Can give a good boost to run more applications in VMs on a NAS/small Server.

    They must get those old 7000 series CPUs extra cheap from Intel.

    I never really understood why cards like this haven't been made well over a decade ago. Sometimes all you want is to get more CPU mores without building another entire computer. Though what confuses me more is how this is focused on a NAS. What kind of NAS needs this much compute power? At that point it just becomes a full-blown server (in which case it'd be cheaper to just buy a single-socket high-end CPU).

    Even if these weren't expensive, I don't think they could be used for gaming, at all. But even if they could, I'd be willing to bet that something like this would significantly hurt gaming performance.

    Well, a lot of the ones I've seen have problems, such as:
    • proprietary drivers and/or need proprietary software to be used effectively
    • are designed to only work on specific servers
    • are basically entirely independent PCs on a PCI(e) card, even to the point where they need their own boot drive
    • are absurdly expensive

    imo basically this for specific case
    NAS deployed in company/office, then as the company grow , the NAS need more power
    rather than replace whole NAS, they can simply use add-in card
    require no downtime

    as it use really limited to specific usage, only small amount of people will look for it
    and considering you need to put support for the product etc.
    for maker, its not a "money-maker" product, better just sell a full product, more profit
    let see how long qnap will stay listing this product

    Yeah single board's been around for a while.

    Funnily enough I had seen one in a Gamers Nexus fan mail video couple weeks ago.

    It was an older revision of the below.
