f I don’t shoot 4K video or HD 120 do I need UHS II cards or UHS I SD extreme pro are fast enough for 12 and 20 shooting and buffering?

It depends how long your bursts are. I wouldn't expect the files sizes to be substantially smaller than 6D ii, and it slows dramatically on a Sandisk Extreme Pro 95Mb/s card after about 15 shots (at 7 fps).

I think the buffer on R6 is supposed to be bigger than 6D ii, but it can also shoot at 3x the speed.

If you are shooting smaller bursts than the buffer size, obviously not a problem, but longer bursts may benefit from a UHS-II card (which may be about 1.5 - 2x the speed at clearing the buffer.
