IntelHD 520 vs NVIDIA 940M benchmark question (Asus Zenbook UX303UB)

I recently bought a Asus Zenbook UX303UB with a skylake 520 and a dedicated NVIDIA 940M GPUs.

If I run Cinebench R15 I get a fps at 40.59 with the 520 and 33.88 fps with the NVIDIA 940M.
In 3DMARK Cloud Gate I get 37.70 fps with the 520 and 31.83 fps with the NVIDIA 940M.

As far as I can see the 520 runs OpenGL 4.4 and the 940M runs OpenGL 4.5.
The IntelHD out performs the NVIDIA card in OpenGL applications but not in DirectX applications like CS:GO (CounterStrike: Global Offensive) for example.

How come? Is the 520 better at OpenGL even though the nvidia uses a later version?
