It comes down to the quality of the oil bypass system in the filter. When you floor the gaspedal, oil filters are spring loaded to bypass when the pressure gets high enough so that the engine isn't starved of oil. Fram oil filters (to be fair, all this information I'm citing is from 25 years ago, but last time I looked at one it was the same) simply have a metal flap that bends and it can end up staying open all the time. The better oil filters have a coil spring mechanism that's more reliable. You can normally tell by the weight of the filter or by looking inside.
