Unity 3.5. 60% faster?

I’ve heard 3.5 version is 60% faster. How is that possible? Not even, 4.0 version, but it’s just an upgrade and 60% faster??? I’m really really curious how that’s possible. Or did i get a wrong information about this.

According to an official Unity press release, the rumors are true:

"Amοnɡ thе Unity 3.5 facial attendance thаt аrе existence shown аt Unite 11:

The more I read about it the more I get the feeling that Unity 3.5 isn’t really “just an upgrade” but it appears that they have we-worked large parts of the core. It’s sort of a semi-major release, not quite 4.x yet, but almost.

It’s very pleasing and reassuring to see how Unity’s development is moving with full steam ahead while taking on board all the feedback that Unity’s users raise. Keep up the good work.
