Will the AF in the Canon 1Dx be identical with the AF in the Canon 5D Mark III I know it will be similar 61 point AF system but will it be identical?

If yes, why would most of us buy the Canon 1Dx for twice as much? I know the canon frame rate is much higher (faster) but I don't see too much difference between the two cameras which would justify me to spend twice as much for a camera...? I am a wedding photographer and I don't use the video capabilities and I don't really need the high frame rate, either.
What I need is fast and accurate focusing... It is hard to believe that the autofocus in the Canon 5D Mark III will be identical with the one Canon builds into the Canon 1Dx...

I am hesitant to pre-order it... Should I pre-order it??? I am willing to buy only it if it is exactly the same!

Any toughs?

From what I read on Canon's Digital Learning Center about the focusing system, the major difference is that on the 1Dx, the tracking system is hooked into the metering sensor as well so it supposedly tracks better (last paragraph before the summary):

Order the 1DX then - the 5D MKIII is a slightly dumbed (crippled is to harsh a word) down version of the 1DX focus as noted.
