ASI1600 Image Quality
The ZWO ASI1600 has a built-in 12-bit ADC but can provide over 12 stops of dynamic range! Which means it can capture a wider tonal range a KAF-8300 sensor. The Camera inherently has a much lower read noise, at a 0 gain setting and will further decrease the higher the gain.
It also includes an upgraded PCB board with a 256MB DDR3 memory buffer. Slow data transmission can cause amp-glow around your image, so the DDR memory buffer takes care of that for you.
