Resolution is the number of pixels that make up the image, if the FX and DX sensors have the same number of Photosites, and so produce the same number of pixels, then the resolution is the same.

Would the FX pixels be better? At base ISO, maybe, maybe not, but as the ISO rises the FX sensor 'should' render less noisy images for equal ISO values because it's Photosites will probably be larger and capture more light and so need not be amplified as much.
