K20 and K10 LOW ISO noise...

Hello everyone!

I saw quite some of pictures, made by K20 preproduction cameras, and I have a question. It seems to me, that with all the sharpness, and all the details on those photoes, there is rather large amount of noise at low ISO speeds.

I compared shots from K20 with my own shots from my GX-10 and mine apperently have lower noise at ISO 100. Actually K20 shots at ISO 100 look like mine at ISO 320-400. K10's noise then inreases fast, while K20 has far better higher ISO, but why newer sensor has MORE noise at lower ISOs?
