AD9361 vs ADRV9004

If I have an application where I need 2T2R from 70 MHz to 6 GHz with a BW of 40 MHz, then both AD9361 and ADRV9004 would satisfy these contraints.

I wonder what the main difference between these devices is. The ADRV9004 is the newer one, is it a replacement for the AD9361 or an addition? 
I wonder why the noise figure of the ADRV9004 is so much higher (12 dB vs 3 dB)?

Thanks!
