Nobel prizes aren't based only on intelligence, but also on drive, persistence and also a little luck (mainly the luck to find something interesting to work on that nobody else has yet solved).

After all "1% inspiration and 99% perspiration" yes?

Drive and persistence are part of intelligence, at least in the sense that any useful AI would have to have them. Saying it measures luck is just saying that it's imprecise.

That said, it's not going to measure all the different components of intelligence in the way we want.
