I know thats the million dollar question right now and no one knows for sure. But I'd still like to hear your opinion. I have an RX 580, it works perfectly fine. Even if I get a better card I wouldn't notice a difference at 1080p/60fps in the games Im playing. So I have no problem waiting. But a)I want to sell mine when I get a new one(Im really mad I didn't sell it during the mining craze) and b)I'll need a new card for next gen games. Now seems like a really <Mod Edit> time to sell since the market is flooded.
It looks like a good time to buy. I found an RX 6600 for 300euro which for me is ok performance for ok money. Im wondering if I wait a year or even more could I get even more bang for my buck.

If there's 0 performance gain, why even look towards a new GPU? Do you have too much money, that you don't know what to do with?

RX 6600 is not a GPU for that. Now, RTX 4000-series is a different story.

Equal performance to GTX 1660 Ti, that Nvidia achieved 2 years earlier. (GTX 1660 Ti - 2019; RX 6600 - 2021) Sure, RX 6600 has 8GB of VRAM but VRAM isn't everything. GTX 1660 Ti has 6GB of VRAM, with is more than enough for 1080p gaming, it was designed to.

That's obvious.
GPU that costed 700 bucks brand new 5 years ago (GTX 1080 Ti), will be weaker than GPU which costs 700 bucks this year (RTX 3080). Performance diff is at least 50% in favor of RTX 3080.
