Looking for good free AV

I’ve been using Avast free since forever, and I’m wondering if there might be something better out there. Or perhaps Windows Defender is good enough? From what I could see, Defender doesn’t detect quite as much, and apparently has a higher performance impact. It would be nice to be rid of Avast’s pop-ups. Bitdefender looks like a good candidate, but I wanted to find out what opinions of it were here before I switched. I also have Malwarebytes free installed, though I’m not sure if it’s even necessary anymore. I was under the impression that AV products are now detecting other types of malware, making a second anti-malware product redundant.
