The large discrepancy in jouney time is due to the differences in the connecting time between trains at Frankfurt (Main).

Depart from Amsterdam on the train that is usually scheduled to leave at around 08:02 and you will only have 13 mins in Frankfurt (Main) to connect into the train on to Wien/Vienna.

This connection isn't guaranteed, so attempting to make it is a gamble -  though if you do take the chance, any tickets/reservations can be transferred free of charge to a later departure at the Reisezentrum travel desk in Frankfurt (Main) Hbf.

However,  if you opt for the longer journey time and depart from Amsterdam at around 10:37, you will have around 1hr 45mins to make the transfer between trains at Frankfurt (Main).

So making this connection on to Wien/Vienna is virtually guaranteed.
