Easy way to find the answer, look at the compatibility guide:

I don't see how this answers the question. My question is not what kind of M.2 SSD is supported, but what kind of PCIe card is supported to put M.2 SSD in. I don't see the QM2 listed in the compatibility list because I don't think this site has a list of PCIe cards supported for M.2.

If you select:
1. 8-Bay
2. TVS-873
3. Expansion Card

It lists all the PCIe cards that QNAP have determined are officially compatible with the TVS-873
All 4 of the current QM2 cards are there along with some wireless network cards, USB 3.1 cards, and 10GbE network adapters.

As for what I have seen QNAP publish, there are no other NVMe cards that are officially supported, however there are plenty that should work.

There are some other omissions from the compatibility list, for instance I don't see any graphics cards even though those are spoken of in the QNAP marketing materials. It might mean they just haven't added them, they haven't officially tested them, or that they just won't support them if issues pop up.

Since the TVS-x73 family has built-in GPU, to my knowledge there isn't going to be support for a separate GPU card. The upcoming TS-x77 family though will have support for GPU card, since the Ryzen chip doesn't have an embedded GPU.

That would make sense. For other models there is a GPGPU category on the compatibility list where discrete graphics cards are listed, rather than under Expansion Cards
