I have a strong suspicion that the AF in the 90d is the same one from the 80d. I see this as similar to what happened when the 70d came out. There were some aspects that were better than the 7d (the updated 20mp sensor for example) but it wasn’t better in every way. Eventually the 7d mk2 did arrive.

I don't understand why many people missed out on the 220,000 RGB + IR pixel metering sensor vs 150k from the 7D II and 360k from 1Dx II. These RGB + IR pixel "assists" a lot in identifying subjects and tracking. The new 90D has Servo face priority in OVF, which is a nice implementation of the RGB + IR pixel.

In comparison, the 80D has a mere 7,560 pixels divided into 63 segments.

So, even if the count of the AF points remains the same, the tracking performance will be hugely improved. (Eg., 5D III vs 5D IV, 1Dx vs mkII)
