DXO sensor score comparison E-620 vs OM-D E-M1

Although i'm not into buying a new camera at this moment i'm curious about the improvement it would give buying a new camera.

The only thing i really don't like about the E-620 is the result of low lighted sports photography (speed skating). I still want to use my 4/3 lenses so the only camera which comes in mind is the OM-D E-M1. But if i look at the scores of DXO the improvement is only a lousy 348 iso (536 iso vs 884 iso). Compared to for example the Nikon D5500 (1438 iso) this is the same as almost nothing.

If i look at the studio comparison of DP-review it looks like the improvement would be more than one stop. Can anyone explain me where the difference comes from? How does DXO comes to these results?

I'm just trying to figure out what the improvements will be so i will be able to make a good decision when i will be in the mood of buying new.
