Sensor in D7500/D500 is better than D7200?

Hi all,

I have been searching but don't seem to be able to find an answer.

Is the change of the sensor going from the D7200 to the D7500/D500 an improvement?  I see the D7500 has fewer mega-pixels, but in the studio comparison images I really don't see much of a difference between the D7200 and the D500.  The text in the center looks easier to read with the D7200 at base ISO but at higher ISO, say 25,600, some areas look slightly better with the D500.

From the sensor standpoint only, this considered a lateral move, a move forward, or a step backward?

Thanks!
