This will be a post for all the new and upcoming models that I will update with data sheets and specs. Considering that Synology is pushing a lot of new models, I felt it would be more clean to separate these type of info into a separate article then to keep them inside a dedicated DS1621xs+ article.

Info on DS1621+ and DS1621xs+ will remain in a dedicated article here, as well as the x20 model lineup here.

Just like the new DS1621+, looks like we are getting another AMD Ryzen V1500B based NAS but this time and 8bay upgrade to the familiar DS1819+. This might very well be the last model we will see before the end of the year

Some hardware specifications about the upcoming model:

DS1821+ HW specifications
DS1821+ HW elements
  • AMD Ryzen V1500B
  • 2.2Ghz 64-bit x86 Architecture
  • Embedded Ryzen SoC Design
  • 4GB DDR4 ECC SODIMM Memory (Max 32GB)
  • 8 SATA Media Bays (supporting 3.5” and 2.5″ drives)
  • 2x M.2 NVMe Slots for cache (supporting up to 2280 NVMe)
  • 4x 1Gbe RJ45
  • PCIe Gen 3 x8 Slot for Expansion Cards
  • 2x eSATA ports to connect 2x DX517
  • 4x USB 3.2 Gen 1 (5Gbps, 1 at the front, 3 at the back)
Support for M.2 NVMe drives
In case you want 10G, you can add a card
Reason why this model is called 1821, a total of 10 more bays can be added

RS1221+/RS1221RP+

Tech spec document: https://ln.blackvoid.club/rs1221plus

RackStation RS1221+​/​RS1221RP+ | Synology Inc.
A powerful storage solution for businesses and IT enthusiasts with redundancy and service continuity features.

New 8bay half size rack size model that will probably come out in January of 2021. Both unit are 298mm (RS1221+) and 399mm (RS1221RP+) in depth, so they will be a perfect fit for a small rack enclouser.

These models have also adapted the new AMD V1500B CPU, the same one present in 1821+ as well as in 1621+, so at the moment we have 4 NAS units (all from "+" segment) running with the new CPU architecture.

Units are 10G ready via PCIe SFP+ and they provide 4x1G lan ports on the back as well. In case you want cache support you can also use the PCIe expansion by installing M2D20 or E10M20-T1 adapter cards to get 10G and NVMe support as well.

General specifications are:

  • AMD Ryzen V1500B
  • 4-core 2.2 GHz
  • Hardware Encryption Engine (AES-NI) YES
  • 4GB DDR4 ECC SODIMM
  • Maximum Memory Capacity 32 GB (16 GB x 2)
  • Maximum Drive Bays with Expansion Unit 12 (RX418 x 1)
  • Hot Swappable Drive YES
  • RJ-45 1GbE LAN Port 4 (with Link Aggregation / Failover support)
  • USB 3.2 Gen1 Port x2
  • eSATA Port x1 (for expansion)
