I can expect VRAM to be appropriate for a 4 year span on a $699 card. It was for the $699 GTX 1080 8GB (I'm using it now 4.33 years after launch and 8GB doesn't fail at this performance level), and GTX 1080 Ti 11GB (certainly will be fine in 2021). 16GB will be fine for the $699 Radeon VII in 2023 without a doubt. I'm not sure how well the $699 3GB GTX 780 Ti did in 2017, but Kepler should not be our target for aging well.
You realize that all those cards you mentioned will be severely outdated in 2023 regardless of VRAM?
I doubt very much we'll see 4 year spans like pascal ever again. At least not for people that like to play new demanding titles.
