    Unity faster than normal?

    Unity is behaving absolutely as if it has rocket launchers attatched to it. It is even quicker that the early alpha-II from quantal.

    A marked increase in performance and speed.

    This message of mine looks like déjà vu to me since we had a situation like this some time ago, as I recall in QQ...
    It is even faster if You turn off zoom... If You do not need it...

    Yeah, even on a netbook, unity dash came up faster now. Searching in unity dash is getting better and responsive, maybe because i've turn off include online search results.

    Code:
    $ uname -r;unity --version
    3.7.0-3-generic
    unity 6.12.0

    As I mentioned above, I had the same 'speedy' response times with QQ alpha2. Thanks for your input. Also noting the 'zoom' I notice they now have these very distinct yellow/orange borders around each frame. another improvment I guess. I have all the bells and whistles enabled. However, I just booted to the daily -i386 desktop iso and no improvement so it looks this phenom is working only on amd64. I am going to install and see if that makes any difference.

    I just seen that link! Thanks. You know , this happened before with alpha 2 QQ. Unity was really snappy but, as the release day drew near it became like molases (standard) again. I have a hunch that I may have downloaded a hybrid daily-image or somthing I did wrong. I dunno .. sure would be nice if it remained this quick. I am about to do a hard install and see where that goes.

    *I am assuming at this stage that the "live" daily is loading all the Unity Indexes and core in memory on some type of mini virtual disk (casper?) but then it will not when it is hard installed.

    regards

    and it is very snappy (note this is yet another one of my machines - not as fast as the Dell 3100 and non HT ,Intel 64bit) and Unity is just jumping, initially. Haven't updated so here goes.....

    This is just awesome. Ubuntu testing is always a phenomenon!! The install went just great and Unity 3D works on this machine as if it had HT technology! (which it does not). This is a 7 years old HP Pavilion with a;
