From what I can see that antutu benchmark is not a great tool to understand the differences between cpus. That said your guess is surely correct, ICS and the experience of HTC have surely a part on the good results shown by the HTC wind.
How about the Battery life score? The Chinese review doesn't provide data for the T328W.
I guess we would have to wait for someone to get and do the test.
That part is surely harder to bencmark, usually most of the battery juice is eaten by the 3G part.
A different provider or a different baseband firmware can do more difference than an overclocked CPU.
My first android phone ( a milestone 1) was used to last less than 5 hours using vodafone, and more than 24h using Three.
That difference was almost deleted with the updated firmwares.
I guess the wind smarphone will have, more or less, the same battery life than the ZTE, more or less the same baseband, slightly larger battery, less efficient CPU, but smaller screen
