Right now, Canon sensors including the EOS-1Dx are manufactured on a 500nm process. Thats the kind of process technology from the AMD 486DX4 era and Pentiums in the early 1990s. The Nikon D4 sensor uses a 250 nm process. That moves us up to the Pentium II or AMD K6 era. The Sony A7R/A7s sensors as well as the D800 sensor are built on an 180nm aluminum platform. Pentium III or Athlon XP.

What Samsung has done with the NX1 is go to 65nm with copper interconnect, the process technology used in the Core 2 Duo (Conroe). That alone is enough to help decrease noise. Where Samsung went even further was to make the sensor a backside illuminated one which puts the circuitry behind the light detecting photocathode layer.

Samsung have been at the forefront of IC manufacturing technology for quite a while and we are seeing them apply their IC making know how to sensors, this will mean not even Sony will be able to keep up with Samsung in sensor tech.

A 26mp BSI APS-C sensor sounds exciting, I await a cheaper model with this sensor.
