Welcome to the forum. I have not tried either unit. Maybe someone here has tried both and can chime in here.

I've run prior generations of Hypertechs and Superchips programmers. They did OK and I realize when I had them the technology had only gone so far.

The Predator (and probably today's Hypertech and Superchips units) are much more advanced. The programming options are nice to have for fine tuning engine performance. And, if you want a special, balls out, tune in addition to an everyday tune based on the canned program; the Predator will hold 5 tunes including your stock one.

I have the Predator 91 octane standard tune on my Ram, a 91 CAI octane tune with a CMR tune (custom, on the dyno, tune) on my SRT and I couldn't be happier.

Click on my "Ram Mods" link below and go to page 2. You'll see my before and after Predator install dyno curves.

I have heard the SuperChips trans tuning is a bit more refined than the DSP. But, if you know how to use your Tow/Haul mode, it's all good with a DSP. It does raise line pressure a bit and basically removes the slow, slipping shifts even at low RPM.

I'm told by those that have purchase the advanced trans tuning option from superchips that it is awesome. You can even set up your own shift schedules.

Not familure at all with hypertech, just picked up the Superchips Cortex and I am very impressed with what it can do. Basic quick tunes and an advanced section for the more brave.
