With the RTX 3060 12gb version announced, is 8gb of Vram enough for current gen gaming? I don't know how these things work so any explanation would be great.

 

PS: I want to get the 3060ti and I don't want to keep on playing the "I'll wait a few months for better tech game".

8gb is only really a potential issue/bottleneck at 4k.

The 3060 uses a slower older version of vram. It's cheaper for nvidia to put compared to putting the newer stuff in. Also more Vram means the data rate is increased and it's closer to newer cards in terms to that aspect.

As for games, no you'll be fine with 8GB until a generation or 2 from now.

Adding a high capacity "slow" memory probably Nvidia preemptive attempt to counter the next AMD budget lineup.

It is cheaper than having to add feature to the gpu chip.
