BR-M755 Quad Piston XT brakes vs newer (2013) BR-M505 brakes

I have a set of older br-m755 xt disc brakes and I'm debating putting them on a bike that currently has br-m505 disc brakes. I know that traditionally, the higher model #s usually meant better equipment but the higher # in this case is also about 8-10 yrs older. Would the older XT brakes be an upgrade/improvement over the newer Deore equivalent 2013 brakes? If it makes any difference, the front disc is 180mm, rear is 160mm.
