3/4 Pex to 3/4 Hose bibb

I would like to add a new hose bibb. I am a lawn nut and I will run sprinklers off this fixture and would like as much volume and pressure as possible.

My house has 3/4 pex coming from the meter and then 1/2 supply lines branch off at various places. Since I will have to buy the pex, fittings and hose bibb anyway, I was thinking I would go with 3/4 pex to a 3/4 hose bibb- about 12 ft.

Will using 3/4 pex and a 3/4 sillcock give me more pressure and volume than if both were 1/2"?

I don't think it matters but I have a Grundfos Scala pressure pump that increases the pressure from the street to whatever i set it at - usually 50-70 psi.

Thanks

A 3/4" line has almost double the volume of a 1/2" line.

I would buy a quality name brand sillcock like Woodford which flows a lot of water. Store brands like from Lowes don't flow anywhere near as much water even though they are 3/4".
