Yes the shift points and pressure thresholds in an basic ATX tranny are adjustable via TCU programming but the actual engagement has always been limited by spring pressures, valvebody layout, and the torque converter.

Looking at the DCT pictures I'd say its ALL clutch material and programming unless perhaps there is eventually solenoid and servo upgrades which I highly doubt.
