You got it there. The six speed would come close/lose to the EB I think.
This new 8 speed gives the Hemi a VERY tall first/second gear and allows the engine to stay well within it's power band while going. It really does gives the Hemi everything it could want. Really low first/second gear to get spooled up fast and then lots of nicely spaced gears to keep it in the band.
This is why the 8 Speed Hemi will walk a stock EB no problem.
