I see but at least on this comparison, it seems the D800e does better.

That comparison is a joke. They are ACR conversions of NEF files. The WB and exposures are different and it could be related to ACR conversion.

Take a look at these sample comparisons from DP Review. The comparison tool is much more reflective of reality. It lacks the color cast in the Ming Thein images, and the exposures are similar. I don't think most people would be able to differentiate the cameras unless they magnify the images to 100%.  You can pick a favorite at 100% but it would never be visible in normal viewing of any size print.
