Assassin and Thief 3rd Edition sneak attack vs backstabbing

Does someone know the mechanics on Assassin and Thief Backstabbing compared to Assassin and Thief Sneak Attack.
The Assassins Backstab multiplier will eventual reach 7x and the Thief 5x.
Does the assassin get a similar advantage when using 3rd editon sneak attack.

I apologise if this has already been answered in another thread, but I did not find anything related to my topic.

THX in advance

    Strangely enough assassins have the best sneak attack progression from start to finish. I'm currently using an assassin in my party. I thought the 1 APR would be a serious issue, but it actual works pretty well since you can only sneak attack a target once.
