Is there any difference between the SSB and the Front Squat in terms of quads hypertrophy?

I think the Front Squat might have a slightly greater moment arm to the knee and less at the hips/spine, but the SSB might compensate for this by allowing more load (mass) to be used (since holding the bar in the rack position is no longer a limiting factor), so they might come out very similar. What are your thoughts on this?

Thanks!
