And the answer to that is clear cut. It's false.

They are using this argument of "this card here uses so and so amounts of VRAM, therefore you NEED this much VRAM". That's what I have issues with.

Now, as to all the specifics of that, why's and how's, true, that isn't as clear cut.

The problem is you are taking that graphic from AMD and adding your own meaning to it. Nowhere does it say those VRAM amounts are required. It simply states how much each game allocated. The inferences of inferiority are your interpretations.
