The channels adjacent to the central tunnel are significantly higher and larger.
From what I can see in the pics it looks pretty standard fare to me. Maybe I just haven't found a good shot of it yet. Compare it against the diffuser on the new Toyota here, which I believe is the most bold design I've seen.

Notice how the housing for the rain light occupies the center of the roof and protrudes into the diffusser area beyond the need for a rain light, effectively dividing the diffuser box into 2 sections, and the roof corespondingly sweeps out aggressively into the lower wing section. I haven't seen that before, along with the aero lump on top of the lower wing, which I believe also as part of the diffuser in that it probably diverts air towards the diffuser exits. Just a hunch but it will be interesting to see other teams play with this new diffuser design.
EDIT.. upon examining more pics maybe the two designs aren't that far apart except for that hump on the Toyota.
