considering BIF, 5DIII or 1Dx for x2 price?

I own 60D & 550 and few lenses (300 4L IS, 400 5.6L, 100L macro, 24-105L). Hope soon 500 or 600 4L IS.........

Would like to consider new FF body due to high ISO performance and hope some DR benefits.

Furthermore I am a beginner for BIF (birds in flight) and would like to check if FF body like 5DIII or 1Dx for x2 price is acceptable.

According to the already available specifications 1Dx offers some key points:

x2 fsp
linked AF and exposure points (I guess it could be important for BIF)
ISO performance is not clear yet, due to pixel size let say 1 stop is + for 1Dx.

5DIII body is more light.......

So, considering BIF only and specification on paper only, does 1Dx deserve x2 price?

Thanks for answers.
