Here is a Kodak Xtol publication (in German ).
I've highlighted the CI .75 curve in red, Kodak's suggestion for EI 1600.

Xtol, for me, gives 1/2 stop more shadow speed than D76, with tighter grain. The highlights don't rise as abruptly. This picture is pretty much what I've always got from Xtol. Even BETTER with TMY, but that's off topic... :o
