    Definitely Vega? I heard the GPU was a Polaris variant?

    Since when did Polaris support HBM2

    If you swapped the GDDR5 memory controller for an HBM one, no problem. The generational names are really only relevant to the shader features. You could quite happily make a GPU with Polaris shaders and HBM memory, or Vega shaders and GDDR5 memory. Of course, the currently available GPUs by those code names have other feature differences as well, so what Intel+RTG have come up with for this could easily be a hybrid between the feature sets of the GPUs we know as Polaris and Vega. Which code name you choose to give it will depend on which bits of the feature set you think are more important...

    ..... I thought the CPU and GPU share the HBM but from the photo I see DDR4 modules

    HBM supply seems to be far from great and quite pricey at the moment, using it for system RAM seems a bit OTT and not within most manufacturers costings.

    On this design HBM is for the GPU only, the CPU still uses standard DDR4

    Basically it's a laptop with a discrete GPU, just with it all being built onto the CPU package.

    Microsoft did this like 7 years ago when they had problems with Xbox360 overheating so they got IBM and GlobalFoundry's to work together and create a CPU/GPU in one chip to minimise power consumption and heating issues so they wouldn't need such big cooling apparatus in a small console and minimise the cost of silicone and i'm pretty sure they still use this technology in the Xbox One and the new Xbox One X, it seems like they just seeing how well Microsoft has done lately with the console and decided to team up and do it themselves for Laptops. About bloody time.
