Running 1T v. 2T... Good for benchmarks for "seeing" a difference, which may or may not be there, IF you can get the system in question to run at 1T (stability issues). Running programs, desktop, games, etc. when successful, result in a placebo effect.

well performance or placebos aside, these high speed memory kits that are rated at 2t will not achive those speed on AMD Ryzen where it's 1T with no option to move to 2t

Since the faster DDR4-4800 kit requires less voltage and has tighter timings, it is obviously the better product. So to me, production of this 4600 kit makes little sense at all unless one of the following is true:
a: there's a DDR4-4600 frequency cap built-into certain X299 CPUs.
b: these 4600MHz kits are much less expensive per GB than the superior-performing and more energy efficient 4800MHz kits.
