Choosing fence picket material and thickness

I can't believe I can't find this answer online... can anyone tell me, if I'm choosing standard 6' PT dogear fence pickets, what is the benefit of 3/4" thickness vs 5/8" or 1/2"? Is it structural, or are the thicker pickets less likely to cup/warp/bend over time? Also, is there any reason I should consider cedar at twice the price? I'm going to be putting on a mildly cedar-toned semitransparent sealer either way. Thanks!
