Is that so, why does Sony clame it than ?

RAW samples show that the A77 suffered from magenta clipping quite early on the sensitivity curve. And so it's possible that Sony addressed this with their latest sensor. Which would constitute a high ISO improvement over the A77 imo.

Based on what I've read, it appears as though many people are upset that the A77 II isn't revolutionary. Though I think it's worth saying that a Mark II release most often comes as a refinement of an existing product rather than that of a new product altogether.

PS. I'm thinking the translucent mirror tech. is coming to an end. Not that I have issues with it(I've grown quite fond of the A99 myself), though I really don't see any good reason for Sony to continue to develop this tech. given the strides made with mirrorless these past few. - my two cents.
