The long wait is almost over, and in a few days we will finally learn everything there is to know about Microsoft’s upcoming console, Project Scorpio. Today, it’s been confirmed that the console is still getting tuned, and it will have some more benefits for developers to release the best possible versions of their games.

On his Official Twitter profile, Mike Ybarra revealed that they’re still tuning Scorpio, and have managed to unlock an additional GB of RAM for developers, meaning that they will be able to use 9GB of GDDR5 for their games.

Even games that won’t use the full 9GB will be able to get some additional benefits, as the rest of the RAM will be used as a cache to improve load times and more.
