Hoping somebody here knows Intel SSDs...

Synology specifies that the only Enterprise grade ~500 gig SSD M.2 SATA modules that are compatible with their M2D17 SSD cache card is what they list as:
INTEL SSDSCKKB480G8 D3-S4510

When I search the web for that, the only thing I find available for purchase is:
SSDSCKKB480G801 D3-S4510

I asked Synology support to confirm that either these are one in the same, or the G801 replaced the G8, or they are equivalents, or they made a mistake in their support document.

But they only said, they didn't know and that the burden is on me to make sure that I only use their approved SSD modules.

I did do some web searching to find out if these part numbers are equivalent, or not. But I could not find such documentation.

So, I'd like some help please in finding out definitively if the SSDSCKKB480G801 and the SSDSCKKB480G8 are the same, or not.

If they are not, where can I buy the SSDSCKKB480G8?
I have not been able to locate a source.

Thank you.

Not finding it too hard to find drives available under the shorter model number. Lots of placing willing to to sell it.

Well, all I was able to find is these little tidbits:

SATA
SSDSC2KG480G8
SSDSC2KG480G801

M.2 Sata
SSDSCKKB480G801
SSDSCKKB480G8

Per mouser: https://www.mouser.com/Search/Refine?Keyword=SSDSCKKB480G8

01 represents the 'Youngsville' refresh, which was them going from 3D1 TLC to 3D2 TLC

Per Wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_SSDs

Far as I can tell the only thing that changed was the type of memory being used, given that Intel gives them the same model name, I would imagine they are compatible with each other.

How that works out with Synology is another matter entirely.

Thanks

I had found that listing on mouser for the SSDSCKKB480G8 but it says "50 PACK" !!!

I found out why. An Intel rep got back to me and said the following:
"The difference is that one of the drives is sold as single pack generic and the second one as a 50 pack but they are the same drives at the end."

Though I'm happy to have this info from this helpful Intel rep.... On the whole I'm not pleased with Intel or Synology.... Intel's product info / parts numbers are inscrutable and stupid and infuriating.... And Synology has an incorrect knowledgebase article.
