Both Sony A99 II and Sony A7R III have 42.0 MP resolution sensors but Sony A99 II's sensor is Full frame (35.9 x 24 mm ) and Sony A7R III's sensor is Full frame (35.9 x 24 mm ).
Since Sony A7R III's has a larger sensor area with the same resolution, this means that it also has a larger pixel area hence better light collecting capacity for a given aperture compared to Sony A99 II.
Another similarity between these two cameras is that both Sony A7R III and Sony A99 II 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 A99 II and A7R III sensor size comparison.
Sony A99 II and Sony A7R III have sensor sizes so they will provide same level of control over the depth of field when used with same focal length and aperture.
