Correct me if I'm wrong but does the charts suggest better dynamic range than for D800?

It absolutely does not have better dynamic range than D800.

And this might be helpful: LINK.

DPR tests the photographic jpeg DR, meaning what you get from the default tone curves available. If one works with the RAWs, the extra DR of either the D600 or D800 would show up. But, in practice and real shooting situations, even with good RAW routines, I doubt most would see any difference.

The DPR DR graph for the various modes confirms my experience with the D7000 that Portarit is the best balanced mode in general:

They don't include Neutral, but IMExp, Neutral gives too flat midtones compared to portrait, and actually no real gain in DR. The colors and mistone contrast are alos a positive point of Portrait mode, a good startint point for PPing images, even landscapes.
