I dunno, Jim. I'm not a DXOmark fan and don't know what their stuff really means either. They seem to put way too much emphasis on MPs as a part of their numbers. So, of course, the higher the MP the body, the higher the scores. I don't believe that just adding MPs actually does anything to improve high ISO performance, if they didn't also program that into the fabrication.

I trust dpreview's methods and findings for ISO performance and I understand what they are about, so I use them as my benchmark.

I know that it's not fashionable these days, to actually look at the pixels, but I want to know what I'm getting if I need to crop heavily. Cropping is one of the big benefits of more MPs, IMO.

There's no emphasis in MP for DxOMark.
