Difference between this ram?

Hi all. I'm looking to upgrade my ram capacity and wouldn't have a clue about which is best for gaming. At the moment I game at 1080p 144hz but I would like to make an eventual move to 4k 144hz when the RTX 4000 series comes out, ideally with the same cpu and ram. Also I don't know if a higher speed than 3600Mhz would benefit me. Currently running a 5900x and a Asus Prime X-570 Pro/CSM. TIA, stilli

It's hard to be sure without version numbers, but most likely those are all based on the same IC and you would expect similar performance from each.  I would have a hard time choosing the Vengeance Pro over the new RT version without a sufficient price difference.  The Dominators have a few unique lighting presets not available to the others and a unique look, but tends to be higher on the price scale.  

 

As for whether there is something to be had by going past 3600 MHz, I will leave that to the AMD owners.  However, even on Intel the difference in normal application use from 3600 to 4000 would be hard to measure.  I am not sure if it will be evident at 144 FPS and under.  As you extend into silly frame rate range, then you can get more from higher RAM frequencies.  Once you go to 4K the benefit it likely to be marginalized by the strong reduction in FPS from 1080 to 2160p.

Thanks for the reply. This makes it pretty easy. I'll get whichever kit I like the look of best! Thanks so much!
