I would hate to write the conclusion for these battles as there really is no conclusion. I think price and brand preference will end up being a big factor then noise/power draw.

I'm very skeptical of this card just because there is no requirement to have the high grade memory to get the moniker. If the card retails for less $$ than the stock 680, then I think AMD scores a point on this small skirmish (provided we only look at performance/price and ignore power/heat).
Spot on.
