Question Will a 3060 Ti/3070 with 8GB Vram be enough for 1080p 75fps Ultra with 4k texture pack?

Hey guys, I'm currently running an almost potato 1060 6gb, so obviously I want to upgrade (if I find stock and decent prices).

I'm looking for at max a $500 GPU and not a cent more (at current prices that's not a 3070, since it's much more over MSRP unfortunately). But let's assume I find one, if not at least a 3060 Ti. Both have 8gb Vram and a lot of power compared to my 1060, so it will be a nice upgrade, but here comes the dilemma...

I want to game at 1080p Ultra (for at least 4 years before I upgrade again) and if possible in every game that has the option to use the 4k texture pack. Now 1080p with 4k textures is easier on the GPU than 1440p/4k with 4k textures, so I think I'll be ok with the horsepower, but how about Vram?

So basically the question is: Will a 3060 Ti/3070 with 8GB Vram be enough for 1080p 75fps Ultra with 4k texture pack?

Has anyone played with this scenario, or playing now? I know 6GB is not enough for this combo, though, but maybe 8GB* is too little of an upgrade also? *(strictly talking about Vram size in this aspect).

Or should I wait more for the RX 6700/XT cards which will have 12 GB? (That can mean waiting 2-3 months...)
