Yes, if the read noise scales with the linear pixel dimensions, then the 'normalized' noise (like in DxO's 'print' figures) will be the same, and that's what I mean then talking about "same per area read noise" and "equally efficient" sensors. In your example, I'd say that sensor A is more efficient than sensor B.

Can you tell me how read noise does scale in reality (and why)?
