How to compare fund size between growth equity and buyout firms

Wondering if fund size is apples to apples between growth equity firms and traditional buyout firms. Thinking that the smaller minority investments may mean that a smaller growth equity firm may make as many/more investments as a traditional buyout firm that is allcoating more capital each opportunity. For example, would you consider a $1B growth firm to be as good as a $1B buyout firm? Understand there are more factors at play (growth equity may make 3 allocations in the same time that buyout makes one, resulting in the same capital outlay in that time), but just wondering if there may be a general way to think about it. Thanks
