The tech is High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC) and you are thinking of this event;
AMD Presents Capsaicin & Cream at GDC 2017

Raja shows Vega limited to 2GB with HBCC on vs a 'normal' Vega without HBCC, not much info on the test setup or the actual results though.

They must have a lot of faith in HBCC to release a 4GB SKU on a 4K card.

It's a massive troll attack target, even with an 8GB SKU alongside.

Still, as long as it's used in Ryzen reviews playing 720p games, there should be no issue.

They are claiming +50% average FPS and +100% min FPS without giving out actual numbers.

Could be interesting for Raven Ridge.

Those gains will appear only when games run out of vram. And it probably means vega will suffer less due to being constrained by low vram. What seems more exciting thought is that according to amd presentation they can optimize vram requirements and reduce them by as much as 50%! So according to this even a 4GB vega will be almost as capable to run vram demanding games as rx 480 8GB or 1070 / 1080 8GB. The 8GB card should have no problems against 1080ti with 11GB of vram.

It's Pitcairn which was one of the most efficient GCN designs until GCN4 (Polaris).

It was only second best after the Fiji lineup. Nano was by far the most efficient one from AMD, but sadly the price was really high.
By using HBM2 we can expect very nice efficiency from Vega If they don't kill it by too high clock speed to fight against Pascal.
