The redesigned F8-422 has a sleeker aluminium chassis without the top-mounted handles for space-conscious users. The built-in high-speed 10GBASE-T RJ45 port offers improved network performance and efficiency over 1GbE networking, a cost-saving upgrade to 10 GbE networking which won't require a 10 GbE NIC card upgrade.

The improved TerraMaster F8-422 NAS now has sleek aluminium housing offers both superb protection and cooling for the drives installed inside. Furthermore, the F8-422 comes equipped with two smart cooling fans that deliver efficient airflow to keep the drives cool at all times during operation.

The high-speed read and write make it ideal for professional content creators that handle large volume data.

The F8-422 with its 10GBASE-T RJ45 port offers 10X the bandwidth of 1 GbE ports and offers best-in-class speeds even without replacing existing Cat6/6A network cable architecture. It also supports multiple RAID modes including RAID 0, RAID1, RAID 5, RAID6, RAID 10, JBOD, and SINGLE.

I've actually seen worse, embedded systems often don't have a higher end CPU, they often don't need it due to hardware offloading.

It's crap in a NAS like this, as the CPU can't do 10Gbps.

My asustor NAS has a 200mhz faster version of this CPU. At 2.5 Gbps I'm seeing roughly 15-20% utilization, and teh turbo never kicks in. I see no reason why this CPU couldnt handle 10 Gbps so long as it had adequate cooling for the CPU.

Sorry, but it can not. Please, at least read a review or two before making claims like that.
This is the five bay version with the same SoC and as you can see, it gets nowhere close to 10Gbps.

I can look at the NAS right beside me, thank you very much. And not a single NAS you linked gets close to 10Gbps in media creation, so what point are you trying to make here?

And if we look at the next page

Oh hey, look, it's hitting 10Gbps in file transfers. Please read a review or two before making claims like yours.

Dude, even TerraMaster says it can't hit 10Gbps speeds.
The TerraMaster F4-422 is dubbed a high-speed NAS by the company. It is outfitted with a quad-core processor and 10GbE onboard connectivity to deliver on its quoted 670MB/s speeds.

And your NAS clearly doesn't have 10Gbps, so what does that have to do with anything.
This is NOT a CPU utilization issue, the platform is simply not cut out to do 10Gbps.
