    This thing is totally overkill. I love it. Wish I had the money, lol.

    Did they run out of cool features to talk about? I don't know if this is going to be a seller of a such a high end device.

    Well... potentially it could. It can run VM machines and it has an R7 GPU so... yep!

    I don't get it - who is this targeting? It's a media NAS but it has features that no media receivers can utilize (like 10Gbps Ethernet). You're basically just buying a PC that is even more limited than a XB1 or PS4. If you can replace the OS with your own, you might as well have just bought a regular PC (and paid less as a result). It has features that, even if the Ethernet bandwidth could be saturated, would not be used. Such as M.2 - what's the point of having 64GB of RAM when you need a SSD for cache too? I'd rather spend that money toward a handful of SSDs in RAID.

    Also, why did they stop there? They implemented all these features, made something that is probably going to cost well over $1500 (without even being fully equipped...) and yet they went with AMD? I'm not complaining - clearly AMD made something that was good enough. But Nvidia specializes in embedded devices and Intel likely would've had something more power efficient. But, good for AMD I guess, I'm glad they got the contract.
