Haven't Ken Rockwell (I know, credibility questions :)) and Thom and others gone on about extra chips that were in the D3 but not the D3x? Are these extra chips in the D700? I would think not if they're a cost issue. Are they helping the D3 perform better?

With the continuous advance in VLSI technology, it is possible that the functionality of several chips has been combined into one chip.

So unless the "common" chips between the 2 cameras are exactly the same parts, I don't think chip count from cameras (that are not produced in the same time frame like this is the case for the D3 and D3x) is something that can be used for much analysis.
