Seems to be more direct competition between Milwaukee and Dewalt now that brushless tool lines are becoming more filled out. Dewalt with specialty trade tools, Milwaukee w a similar screwgun, outdoor power equipment, etc. "Anything you can do, I can do better, I can do anything better than you" "No, you can't" "yes, I can" :P. Works for me, hopefully some aggressive sales are the result. I'll let Brookfield and Baltimore battle over which color ends up in my toolbox.

Any pictures or videos of this?  The only thing that comes up on google for dewalt DCF662 is this page.

 

If it's just a screwgun with torque settings like a drill I won't be impressed.  Torque is an incredibly inaccurate spec for wood screws.

 

Considering how specific they're being about it's intended purpose, I think there's more to it than clutch settings on a random drill.

Seems likely.  In one of the promo images there was a tool next to the brushless drywall driver that looked like the brushless driver with the head of that.

 

If it's a more complicated clutch, anyone know in what way?

Physically, no...but probably something more positive mechanically to insure better consistency. As you said, for something that has to cross different materials and different thicknesses and maintain some kind of uniformity means something would have to change, or else no sense in making it in the first place and let any regular cordless drill take the space. Something about it would need to be special and use specific.
