RG Necks getting thicker? (18mm vs 17mm last year)

I have noticed that on ibanez main website (don't go to U.S. website it doesn't give good information on specs, just pick any other country ) neck dimensions for RG guitars have been changed. It used to be 17mm and 19mm at 1st fret and 12th fret. This year it looks like they are, 18mm and 20mm respectively.

I wanted to buy an RG or RGA but haven't tested any yet. I was happy with the thin Wizard neck and I wonder if Ibanez really added some thickness to it.

Have you noticed this change in neck dimensions? Is it thicker?
