Drivetrain loss in DCT v. M6

I was wondering if drivetrain losses from engine to wheels is pretty much the same for a dct and a M6? Usually the M6's have less loss than a true torque convertor auto but is the dct more or less parasitic than the M6 or the same?

Based on the dynos in the dyno database (copy attached), there seems to be little or no measurable difference. There should be a difference due to the complexity of the DCT, but it does not show up.
