    Best SATA SSD for performance/endurance

    Hi there,

    The system drive on my workstation is comprised of four 480GB Intel DC S3500 SSD's in RAID0 on an Areca ARC-1882ix-24 (with 10% unpartitioned spare area, and daily backups). I'm running out of space and want to upgrade, to at least double the size. I know Intel isn't at the forefront of SSD performance anymore, but I'd rather stick with the brand as my previous Samsung 840 Pro SSD's had timeout issues.

    According to Wikipedia the D3-S4610 ("Youngsville Refresh") is Intel's latest SATA SSD. Any thoughts on this drive? Will they outperform my existing DC S3500's?

    Thanks!
    Primary workstation (circa 2010 + upgrades):

    + Dell M6600 laptop / 2x PM830 RAID0 / 32GB RAM
    + 24-Bay 80TB whitebox SAN / Norco RPC-4224 / Asus P6T6 / Intel i7-920 / 24GB ECC RAM (for eventual Xeon)
    + Toshiba M7 Tablet PC / 120GB Intel 320 G3 SSD
    + various iPhone & Android gizmos
    + TRS-80

    Intel leads in drive performance with the Optanes, all else is NVMe.

    Second choice? Look at Phison E18. Companies like Sabrent build the most aggressive E18
    Intel 9990XE @ 5.1Ghz
    ASUS Rampage VI Extreme Omega
    GTX 2080 ti Galax Hall of Fame
    64GB Galax Hall of Fame
    Intel Optane
    Platimax 1245W

    Intel 3175X
    Asus Dominus Extreme
    GRX 1080ti Galax Hall of Fame
    96GB Patriot Steel
    Intel Optane 900P RAID

    Thanks! I'm specifically looking for SATA SSD's. I know these are old now; I'm OK with that. Don't need bleeding edge, just want to make sure the higher capacity drives will deliver equal or (hopefully) better performance and ensure I don't overlook better SATA options.
