Default x1800 / 1900 xt

looking at the 256mb versions of these cards I am a little confused, the core clock and memory clock is faster on the 1800 and the pixel pipelines are also higher on the 1800, what makes the 1900 that much better?

1900xt is better because it has 48 shaders while 1800xt is only 16
