Roomba 980 vs i7 - carpet/power boost

I currently own the Roomba 980 and just recently purchased the i7.

When I run the i7, I notice it is way way quieter than the 980. Does the i7 have the same power boost on carpet that the 980 has? Or is mine perhaps just not working? It honestly sounds like the only sound is coming from the motor, and not the suction.

If the i7 does not have powerboost, would that mean the 980 is better for carpeted areas?
