Both Nikon D810 and Nikon D800E have Full frame sized 36.0 MP resolution sensors so sensor size and resolution is not a differentiator between these two cameras.
Another similarity between these two cameras is that both Nikon D800E and Nikon D810 sensors lack anti-alias (Low-Pass) filters. Removing anti-alias filter increases the sharpness and level of detail but at the same time, it increases the chance of moire occurring in certain scenes.
Below you can see the D810 and D800E sensor size comparison.
Nikon D810 and Nikon D800E sensors have exactly the same size so none of them has any advantage over other in this area.
