Thinking of it from a "logic" point of view - it shouldn't make a difference.

A 90th percentile mark is a 90th percentile mark is a 90th percentile mark.

No, it should not. If there a significant change in mean scores from year to year, they look to the percentile to see where you lie.
There is precedent for this -- such as when the format of the SAT changed a few years back.

Respectfully,

To be honest, I am not completely sure. I am not sure how much information that they have released about the new test.

Without knowing anything about this GMAT change, I would rather take the old version. The old version is going to be easier to prepare for. You will know exactly what to expect on the test, there are prep tests, and the prep companies have solid prep materials already made for the existing GMAT format. For these reasons, if you plan on doing significant prep, your advantage will be maximized by taking the old version. If you are just a naturally awesome test taker and you don't plan on doing significant prep, go ahead and take the new version when it comes out.
