Well unless you believe that Asians are just genetically superior to other people (which I do, being half Korean), there is no difference between an Asian taking the GRE in the U.S. or elsewhere. The difference comes from where you were educated. A person educated outside of the U.S. usually takes classes only involving his/her major, whereas U.S. students have outside requirements (like taking English classes even when you're majoring in science fields). This means that at the end of a 4 year degree, an international student has the equivalent of a Master's degree in the U.S., but domestic students only have a Bachelor's. As a result, international students do significantly better on the GRE as opposed to U.S. students. If you went to school in China but took the GRE in the U.S., you would still do much better than someone from the U.S. who took the test in China.
