When showcasing their new lineup of notebooks at CES, Lenovo has accidentally revealed AMD's RX 560M GPU alongside their Y520 laptop, marking the first appearance of the RX 500 series. 
 
In Lenovo's description, they list this new AMD GPU as supporting up to 4GB of VRAM, though at this time no other specifications are known. Right now this GPU is expected to be a mobile refresh of AMD's Polaris 11 RX 460 GPU, though it alternatively could be AMD's rumoured Polaris 12 GPU, which was recently listed inside AMD's Linux drivers.

Up to 4gb? that kinda sucks. Mind you, knowing Lenovo it won't be too expensive. Just wonder if it's full of ransomware like some of their other stuff.Quote

4GB is more than enough when talking mobile. It's not like they go higher than 1080p(for decent performance at least). You could drop AA TBH and be totally fine and probably not even notice a difference in IQ.Quote

Even at 1080p certain games use up to 6gb VRAM. It's limiting man.

And that is right now. These laptops won't be cheap compared to a desktop and you're limited from the off.Quote

4gb should be fine, tbh enthusiast gamers tend not to game on a laptopQuote

it's sold as a performance gaming laptop.. therefore it should have specs suitable for said performance gaming, and I'm with Alien on this, at 1080p games from last year will easily fill 4gb of vramQuote
