BOM goes the bank balance
It is hard to forget the fact that Vega is more than a year late. It was supposed to launch last year and AMD had to settle for Polaris 10 and 11 performance mainstream / mainstream parts.
But laptops / tablets might benefit
It looks like 2017 is going to be a year of 8GB RAM with high-end phones. Most manufacturers support 8GB with their phones and there is a clear trend to add more Random Access Memory to them. Tablets and laptops will benefit, as well.
8GB DRAM in a tiny package even if you don't need it
We should start seeing 8GB appearing as standard in flagship mobile phones soon thanks to Samsung’s new silicon that packs 8GB of DRAM in a single tiny package.
With a simple BIOS flash
It appears that some reference retail/e-tail Radeon RX 480 4GB graphics cards are actually shipping with 8GB of VRAM that can be unlocked using a simple BIOS flash.
The dark satanic rumour mill has manufactured a hell on earth yarn claiming that the coming LeEco LeMax 2 Pro will have 8GB of RAM.
Liquid VR and sources offer proof

To be available alongside the Vapor-X model
Following the successful launch of the R9 290X Vapor-X 8GB graphics card, Sapphire has decided to introduce yet another Radeon R9 290X graphics card with 8GB of video memory, lower clocks, and a Tri-X triple-fan cooler.
4GB 360 owners be aware
Nothing Mini about the price though
In both Vengeance and Value Select flavours
