Ps5 has 36CU not 44. And since you mentioned ps5 think of this, ps5 tdp is 175w while also including 8 zen2 cores and gpu being clocked at 2250mhz in top. I think RDNA2 is looking pretty good in terms of efficiency40 CUs is a pretty substantial mid-range card. PS5 is RDNA2 with 44 CUs, and XBSX is 52. The memory bandwidth would be a better indicator to the level of performance they're aiming at.
AMD is weird. The 5500 XT had 8GB versions released (but also cheaper 4GB versions). I honestly could see 8GB GDDR6 being offered for low-end cards from AMD and 16GB from the high end.
I agree with you that 6GBs for the low/mid range would be the sweet spot. Also, given the 192-bit bus, I think 6GBs is most likely, but AMD could very well deliver 12GB versions of the card for kicks.
