The remade are completely redesigned humans: humans 2.0. Their cardiovascular systems are stronger, the digestive tract has been sanitized and restructured to eliminate flaws, and they have otherwise been optimized for good health, smarts, and longevity with numerous transgenic mods. The remade are popular with the ultimates faction. The remade look close to human, but are different in very noticeable and sometimes eerie ways: taller, lack of hair, slightly larger craniums, wider eyes, smaller noses, smaller teeth, and elongated digits.

Scent.In.Hell: The remade models available on the open market are not the ones currently used by high-ranking ultimates. Those top dogs use models that are two or three generations ahead of those put into distribution. Those state-of-the-art designs almost never leave the main ultimate habs, like Xiphos. On certain deployments where the entire group is ultimates, you may see the next model that is likely to hit the market in a few months, which helps hype the expectations.
Sequencer: The remade models released by other manufacturers are generally equivalent quality to the current ultimate stock.
Parallax: Lots of criminal types like to snag a remade for their top muscle. Most people see remade and they assume the ego inside is an ultimate and therefore not to be fucked with. Most real ultimates aren’t going to dirty their hands playing bruiser for a cut-rate Dragon Head.
