What's the difference between smart E1h and F1h attributes?

I'm looking at a 710 drive, but the 320 seems to have the same attributes.

The docs detail :

E1h Host Writes

 

The raw value of this attribute reports the

 

total number of sectors written by the host

 

system. The raw value is increased by 1 for

 

every 65,536 sectors (32MB) written by

 

the host.

and

F1h Total LBAs Written

 

Counts sectors written by the host.

But in practise the two counters return the same value (at least for me they do).

Are there two distinct attributes for compatibility with certain smart utilities, or is there a real difference between these counters ?

Thanks.
