Acer to chip up home Nas box

EasyStore gets faster, more power hungry CPU

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Acer has said it'll update its EasyStore four-drive Nas box later this month with a new Intel Atom processor.

The EasyStore H341 has the 1.66GHz Atom D410 on board - its predecessor, the H340 - reviewed here - had the 1.60GHz Atom 230, now officially end-of-lifed by the chip maker.

That should speed up the box's Windows Home Server a smidge, but since the D410 consumes more that twice the power of the 230 - 10W to 4W - it'll do nothing for the EasyStore's power conservation properties.

Other specs remain as before. The H341 takes up to four 2TB 3.5in Sata hot-swap hard drives on which content is stored and served by Windows file sharing, iTunes' DAAP and DLNA.

Acer says it's state prices when the box is released mid-September. The current model is available for around £300 with 2TB of storage. ®
