We can see the AS6508T uses an Intel Atom C3538 quad-core processor at 2.1GHz, and a single 8GB DDR4 SODIMM is expandable to 32GB. In larger systems, an Intel Atom C3538 can take up to 4x 64GB RDIMMs for a total of 256GB, however, it is limited by the two SODIMM form factor here. For most NAS applications 8GB will be fine and 32GB expansion will cover use cases where the NAS is also serving heavier SMB server duties.

Test Configuration

The platform that we use for the testing on all of our NAS testings consists of the following items.

Let us continue with testing the ASUSTOR Lockerstor 8 AS6508T 8-Bay 10GbE NAS.


  1. But does it support ZFS? Looks like it uses Btrfs instead…

    I’m tempted to downsize, but I’m not giving up ZFS.

  2. You say “We did not get to test the unit with NVMe caching which may have helped the unit’s perf”…
    Why ???

    First you say this is a must have feature. Later you list the NVMe drive in the test configuration.
    Then you don’t use it?
    What’s the point of these tests then?

  3. I haven’t seen anything about power consumption which is, in my opinion, a key parameter for consumers.
    Could you elaborate this point please ?
