Not for that large a difference... Unless one of the cards has a very strange allocation unit size which doesn't map well with the "block" size being used in the formatting. Or, the wear-leveling algorithm for one card reserves a lot of "nominal space" for replacement of bad blocks (rather than being manufactured with hidden spare blocks).
