ASI120MM or DMK21AU618 for faint IR work?

I'm currently using a DMK21AU04.AS, and needing a bit more gain.

I've seen a lot of interest in the ASI120MM camera recently, and have seen some comparisons of these two side by side for the bright planets like Jupiter and Saturn, but I'm wondering which of the two will give better results on faint targets like Uranus in IR, or Neptune?

Anyone have any data, like comparative frame rates under the same conditions?

From what I can read so far, the ASI is clearly the best bang for buck, but I'm wondering which has the best SNR.
