They aren't directly comparable. DxO is primarily a RAW processer/editor, Topaz are plug-ins.

DxO v8's in-built photo editing capabilities are decent, but not fancy like Photoshop. Quite aside from the lens correction features, it has a lot of useful film emulations and camera profiles built in, good sharpening tools, very good geometric distortion correction features, some nice presets like the single-shot HDR one etc built in. Lots to play with. Under this deal, for $0, you get a lot.

Usefully, having a copy of v8 loaded makes any move to v9 cheaper, since it's then at upgrade prices.
For those who care:

I know this isn't a DxO support forum, but wondered if anyone else had this problem -

The software installed and activated fine, but after almost every operation, it hangs for 10-30 seconds. No CPU utilization going on during the hang. After some amount of time, everything is fine until doing another modify operation. Then, same behavior.

My machine is sufficiently capable (16GB, i5 2500), so it's not that.

That page may be down, and the offer over, but their site is still up and running:

This is a good way to check out the program but the two later editions have added a lot of functionality not in 8.
