There will be some performance gains when you speed up the processing inside the NAS box BUT, the main performance issues have to do with the TCP/IP protocol stack and the overall performance of the LAN. In this case, more gains may be yielded with attention to other areas. I worry about implementing some things in hardware that may have changes/ advances such as HTTP. I believe there will continue to be some improvements here such...
that the hardware will have to change to take advantage of them.
