Question VRM efficiency aorus master x570s vs x570

It seems that the new x570s has the same controller and mosfets as the original aorus extreme.
This bumps the mosfets from 50A to 70A and adds 2 more of them.
The review on tomshardware shows the new x570s master being the highest in idle power usage.

Do you think the old x570 master is more efficient than the new x570s master ?
I know we are just talking about a few watts here, but the topic kinda interests me.
What are your thoughts on this ?
