Tiffen DHT vs Hoya HRT Polarizing Filters?

With very little knowledge of Polarizers and their quality - could anyone provide some insight on this question:

If my concern is over how you lose a certain amount of light hitting the sensor due to the Polarizing filter, is there a difference in this regard between Hoya's HRT (High Rate Transparency) and Tiffen's DHT (Digital High Transmission) filters?

i.e. is "HRT" vs "DHT" an apples to oranges comparison, where one is for allowing more light to hit the sensor (HRT) and the other is for transmitting more non-reflected light?

Please correct me if wrong here!!! I'm mainly interested in which filter allows more light to hit the sensor fully polarized.
