I think this is posted earlier on in the FAQ. I think you are speaking of the Retro Valve, and not the RT? (the RT valves were available only on the old school RTs). If not, I can explain that was well.

There are a few small differences between the X-valve and the ReTro valve. The X-valve is constructed of all aluminum, while the ReTro valve is about 2/3 stainless steel. The Retro Valves are no longer made, but they were $300 new, and featured "ReTro Valve" laser engraved on the back half of the regulator. The X-valves are more expensive becuase of the LX, and they have the X-valve logo engraved on the back.

Performance wise they are identical, as they are both the same exact design (the parts are completely interchangable).
