Take a look at Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gasoline_direct_injection
No throttling lossess=no pumping losses, without a throttle plate...

Seems like there are three types of direct injection:
There is one with throttle, Toyota uses it and seems like Subaru uses it as well.
One with auxiliary throttle, needed at low load
One with no throttle, that uses a concept called stratified charge. This provides fuel savings at low loads. Audi seems to use this, but possibly not for the US market.
