a65 vs a77ii shutter speed

Took a drive to the nearest store with an a77ii in stock which is an hour away. No stores closer stock it. When I bought my a65 most stores in the area were stocking it and the a77, anyway that is another issue. I am upgrading from the a65 and have done my research but wanted to get the camera in hand for obvious reasons. Took test shots of the same scene at the store with my 65 and the 77ii. The shutter speed results as follows. This is not a scientific test but the results and consistent.

iso         65 77ii

200 1/20 1/15

400 1/40 1/25

800 1/80 1/50

1600 1/160 1/100

3200 1/320 1/200

High iso is definitely better on the a77ii, for most photography these results are not a concern but I do a lot of action wildlife photography.  Should I be concerned? Is this Sony trying to make higher iso look better or is their a technical reason for the difference.
