Sony and Nikon sensor alike?

Look at the gold coloured contacts at the left side of the image of the Nikon sensor (from their brochure) and the ones on the top of the Sony sensor. A perfect match.

Ofcourse no proof that they are exactly the same, but there is certainly some common ground. Although Nikon states a different effective pixel count than Sony, the pixel count of images is the same. And also the gross pixel count is the same. Is Nikon trying to confuse us? The samples of the D3X images sure look different from the A900. But the similarity in built makes you wonder where the difference in price is based on.

Anyhow, the shown samples look pretty good .... so I guess it's a no brainer. The D3X will get a place in our photostudio ...
