Unity 5.6 Beta is now available and there are some big news coming with it. Along with the Facebook Gameroom & Google DayDream support, improved editor, new video player and a bunch of new general improvements, version 5.6 comes with support for Vulkan. According to developers, this could bring up to 60% performance boost out-of-the box.
Vulkan is a next-generation API which takes advantage of multiple CPU cores, running multiple threads simultaneously. We have already tested DOOM with OpenGL and Vulkan and we measured up to 30% more FPS using the latter.
The final version of Unity 5.6 will run on Windows, Linux, Android and Tizen.
