Have observed this myself with same conclusion, which is whether or not tubers are on the official list of reputable yadda - I still regulate my salt seller for invested interest bias.
Take the 8GB thing, i'm sorry to go on about this but 8GB was fine on a GTX 1070, its not fine on a 2070/Super, its certainly isn't on a 3070/TI.
What makes my blood boil about all this is when reviewers knowing and no longer able to deny its a problem instead go in to milk-toast defence mode for Nvidia, ""well its only a few game and you just turn down the graphics, so it doesn't need more than 8GB."
£600 RRP for a GPU with the same memory architecture as a mid range GPU from 2016 and they just ###### refuse to acknowledge anything negative about that situation.
Its the "you only need 4 cores" thing all over again, remember when tech journalists were parroting that over and over again for years?
Disingenuous tech journalists are the problem.
