True, the stream processor in Ultra run at 1.5GHz, while in HD2900XT it is only 743MHz

But the main reason why GTX and Ultra outperform HD2900XT is because they have higher texture and pixel fill-rate.

AMD's Radeon HD 2900 XT graphics processor - The Tech Report - Page 2


And the G80 stream processor are more efficient than R600, because the stream processors in G80 can co-issue one MAD and one MUL instruction per clock to each of its 128 stream processors.. While R600 can't do that...

And Ultras generally run cooler, and use the same/less power than a GTX. Not to mention they can OC to 7xx/25xx since they have hand selected G80's.

Worth the extra $100? Of course. Thats why I bought one.
