It will because its based on the valve type.
A T98c is an inline blowback. They sorta function like a Spyder stacked tube blowback..but within one tube instead of two. An unbalanced spool functions much much differently. They aren't as violent of a mechanism, and will shoot infinitely smoother, as the thing moving back and forth is grams, not pounds...and will be moved by air, not springs.
In your T98 - your trigger tips your sear, your hammer uses the spring power to propel its self forward, striking the valve pin. The valve is opened, and air propels the ball forward. Excess gas is used to blow the hammer back, resetting it for your next trigger pull.
In a Rail - your air system and solenoid are using air to press the bolt sail o-ring (and bolt along with it) in the closed position. When the trigger is pulled, the solenoid shifts position, the air holding the bolt sail o-ring is vented, the rammer moves forward, and the air from the dump chamber is used to propel the ball forward. When the solenoid returns to the "off" position, air is then used to reset the bolt.
So - if you're just looking at the word air or Gas, you can see how much more air the Rail will use to cycle, as opposed to something like a T98.
But - in their nature, spool valve markers are usually less efficient than their poppet brethren.
