Also, to achieve better IQ Nikon seem to have compromised on the noise and that's why D7100 exhibits a lot more noise compared to same sensor D5200.

No, it doesn't.  It's about the same as the D7000

As for D7100 and D5200, they have the same sensor. Therefore, same noise.

D7100/D5200 sensor is better, for high ISO, than the D7k. Dxomark comparison is correct and shows it clearly.

The D7100 shows less blurry details, stronger color and better contrast, all owing to the lack of an AA filter.

Actually, a correction here - any difference you see here with regards to noise is because D7100 was give a half-stop exposure advantage over D5200. Dpreview is very good at misleading people with their fumbled tests.
