?? K-R IQ versus K-X IQ

At a different forum there was a recent thread which concluded that IQ wise there was little difference between the K-R and the K-X. While most of the posters there are honorable some come with an agenda. So I thought I'd ask those who have the best reason to be fair and critically objective. So for those who really know, is there much difference IQ-wise? And as a follow-up question, do the K-R's other upgrades seem worthwhile even if the IQ is not that much better?

Thanks to Devorama's contribution, I copied the same ISO's then cropped, then pixel-peeped, there is indeed K-r is very slightly better, buıt certainly it is better. They were shot in DNG RAW and processed with no additional noise reduction. So, it's like a final conclusion to me.
