Dear Raghav ji,

I also recently read this. In the book "Vedas" by Sri Chandrasekharendra
Saraswati/Sankaracharya of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham
on amazon
mentions this. The Gayathri mantra is same for Rig, Yajur and Sama Vedis.
But for Atharvana veda, the Gayathri mantram is different. if somebody
wants to learn
the gayathri mantra from Atharvana veda they have to undergo a 2nd
upanayanam. Since its from maha perival's say I believe that.
