I have BR-R451 brakes on my fixie would changing to Shimano R650 Dual Pivot 57mm Drop Brake Caliper be worthwhile?

I have those on the other bike, and I think even with stock pads on the R650 they were pretty good, better than the R451 (going back a while)

How could two similar brakes offer so different levels of braking performance? They're both caliper, dual pivot, deep drop brakes.
Say... That's a nice bike..
Trax T700 with Lew Racing Pro VT-1 ;-)
