AMD launched their new Radeon RX Vega series of graphics cards last month, but it looks like we will see a mobile variant sooner, rather than later.

HP looks to be the first with Radeon Vega M mobile graphics, powered by AMD's upcoming Ryzen 5 2500U 'Raven Ridge' APU. HP's upcoming Envy X360 15-BQ101NA will be the first Zen APU-powered laptop, with a Ryzen 5 2500U @ 2GHz, with up to 3.6GHz Turbo frequency.

Inside, HP's new Envy X360 will feature 8GB of DDR4-2400 RAM, 256GB NVMe SSD, 1080p Full HD touch-enabled display, and Vega Mobile. AMD could provide Vega 8 or Vega 10, with 45W of power consumption for the entire laptop.

Vega inside of a laptop is going to be very interesting, for more than one reason. First, power consumption locked to 45W for the entire laptop means that the APU doesn't have much to work with, and then the Vega M variant will be interesting to know - Vega 8 or Vega 10, but how powerful will it be? I'm sure it's there to handle 1080p video and that's about it... but I don't see anything about HBM2.

Are we to expect Vega SKUs without HBM2? Is Vega built for a RAM standard other than HBM2? Is this something new because of the current yield issues with HBM2, something I exclusively revealed earlier this year. Interesting times ahead...
