6D jpg size compared to e.g. D600?

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I noticed that the 6D's jpgs are much smaller than the D600's. For example, the studio shot on dpreview high iso comparison shows the 6D at 7.1 MB and the D600 at 14.5 MB! Out of curiosity, I checked the Canon 60D, it is 7.8 MB and the Nikon D5100 is 8.4 MB.

This seems almost too good to be true, higher resolution and much better low light performance than my D5100 and smaller jpgs? Am I missing something?
