D780 vs D850 RAW flexibility

I'm currently shooting with two bodies, a D750 and a D810. I shoot a lot of night and low light scenes, so I love the performance of the D750 but the RAW files don't give me anywhere near the flexibility I get with the D810. For example, I can easily recover highlights and bring out details in shadows with the D810 NEF files but with the D750, the results look more like I am recovering highlights in a flat jpg, making grey muddy areas where light is blown out.

The new D780 is super nice, and I'm not keen to get the heavier D850. But how do they compare for RAW files? Will it be the same situation as I currently have with the D810 and D750?
