Though from iso around 80 up to iso 400 the 2012 sensor has significant better DR than the D850s' super sensor. From this point on the two sensors go neck to neck up to 6400 iso.
All this is weird to me considering that we are comparing the best DSLR ever made to a 2012 obsolete camera.

The D810 and D850 have higher DR at base ISO.  End of story. The sensors were tweaked to give higher possible DR.  This happens @ ISO 64.  The slopes of the curves are all the same.  The result?  You get slightly lower DR at higher ISOs.  I’ve owned all three and I’ll take D810 or 850 over a D800E any day.
