By looking at them it's only the XD tactical pros that are going for that much, the standard tacticals are going for $435 or so. The only difference I can see is that they are stainless steel (other than the frame). The front sight looks different as well. Here's a pic:
I have heard they are stainless, extended beavertail to reduce muzzle flip, full trigger job with fiber optic sights. They are designed to basically be IPSC ready. Haven't seen any in person though. Would be a nice duty gun.
