I think RushKit reviews that involve cpu coolers/power supplies/graphics cards should include a 10-15 second part which actually films how loud the component is in idle and load. Given the conditions are the same the relative values of noise does not matter - it will be able to see if say a Gigabyte card is quieter/noisier than an Asus one and so on. It will be massively helpful as there are a lot of people that care more about noise than 30MHz overclocking headroom.

Because it costs almost 0 in research to design a card that just has 2 times the memory chips and offers a product in a different niche => can possibly sell more of the same stuff without really spending anything. The headroom in price is just the memory itself, they do not want to get value from that, just want to sell more cards.
P.S. Actually the difference between the 4gb and 2gb in this case is quite significant, mere 3 heatpipes. Have no idea why they're using the 450W heatsink they have for 780 for the 4gb version but use a sh*t one with just 2 heatpipes for the normal and oc 2gb versions of GTX 760. Such a shame.
