AMD Vega will be powered by the HBM2 memory, which comes with eight times the maximum cell density and twice the bandwidth compared to the HBM1 memory, which was debuted with the Radeon R9 X Fury. In theory, you may use up to 32 GB of memory through four stacks, eliminating the limitation of 4GB per stack in HBM1.
