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)?

Well, it depends, but I'm not really the right person to explain this in detail. Emil (ejmartin) said a bit about it yesterday in another thread :


..and you can compare a lot of actual cameras here :
