Yeah, 24GB is a bit excessive if you're just looking for a high-end GPU to see you through a few years of gaming. Even with the demands a modern game brings I would be very surprised to see anywhere near the full 24GB utilised (for pure gaming purposes). Of course, the fact that these cards are increasingly becoming more general-purpose means that the memory could well be used for more than purely gaming-related assets... And then there's the whole 8K gaming thing. Which I don't think we should even be entertaining at the moment. The demands that even high-fidelity 4K make on these new cards is ridiculous. True 8K assets will happily start to eat up that precious RAM too so maybe 24GB isn't too much after all... 8K through DLSS is semi-permissible though, I'm a fan of the technology and excited for where it's going.
