Resized a 6400 ISO raw conversion to 6mp. LR4.2 only and exported tot jpeg with lightroom.

The iq is as good as 200 ISO on my old Minolta 7D.

No, it isn't. Unfortunately we don't have the imaging resource test scene shot with the 7D but I'm sure it would look better than the mushy ISO 6400 sample that has a very distinct NR look to it (and what's with the blocked shadows in your jpeg sample).

At ISO 200 not only should the 7D show better details, it would also exhibit a better dynamic range.

While we should acknowledge the progress made in imaging sensors, hyperbole doesn't help.
