inconsistent snapshot size reported

VCSA 6.7

ESXi 6.7

When I look at the vCenter > VM > Manage Snapshots, I see there is on snapshot with "data size" = 3.5 GB. However, when I query using PowerShell, the reported size for the snapshot is almost 0GB. This happens to other VMs as well and PowerShell seems to always returns smaller sizes.

My Powershell just use

get-vm -Name [vm_name] | get-snapshot | select sizeGB

Why the difference?

Thank you.
