1DX Mark III new Autofocus sensor

Hi all,

I went through the 1DX Mark III white paper and its incredible how many improvements they put into this new iteration. There is one thing that got me wondering and its the new autofocus sensor they used which has supposedly 28 times the resolution. Now what does it imply for autofocus performance? Does it mean that because of great accuracy and precision improvements it doesn't require any AFMA anymore? That it is acting more like a dual pixel AF system?

Thanks for any comments on this.
