    Hi guys I installed Unity on an ssd with a clean installation of windows 7. In the same pc I have always used the same version of Unity (2018.2) without too many problems but now since I installed it on ssd I can't work anymore because in editor is slow and jerky. The video card driver is the same as before the ssd. Starting the exe some games that I created with Unity, are fluid and without problems. How can I solve it? Thank you

    You've scanned for malware? I recommend Malwarebytes, has a free scanner - just to make sure its not the OS having issues.

    Are you using Unity HUB beta ? if yes, then just close it.

    The operating system was newly installed.

    Can you reduce your mouse's polling rate (if you have a mouse with high polling rate)? There are some bugs with that.

    The whole system is the same as before I installed the SSD, including the video card driver.

    So you just installed win 7 64 bit, no software whatsoever except unity? Updated windows?

    Exactly I installed all the updates and drivers in the PC and then installed only Unity.
    I don't know if it could be useful but it seems that Unity doesn't read the video card.

    Well, perhaps consider upgrading to windows 10, they are dropping support for windows 7, so most developers (most likely UT as well) are not really focusing on keeping windows 7 fully functional, and driver updates have stopped coming in.... there are plenty reasons to upgrade right now...

    Certainly it will be my intention to upgrade to Windows 10 but I can't explain why switching to an SSD that should improve the system, Unity doesn't work as before. Confirm that it is not correct to read in Unity DX11 on DX10 GPU, or does it not matter?

    What video driver is actually being used? dxdiag will tell you, device manager will have it, and I believe the Unity editor's log will have it.

    Hi Joe, this is the dxdiag of the video card. It's a bit of an old card but as I said before I never had big problems with Unity.
    I think there's some configuration and optimization in Unity but I don't know how.

    Well that card never got DX11 support, so Unity saying DX10 GPU is correct. A decade old video card I would expect to have issues running Unity after DX9 support was dropped from the editor. I'd see if forcing OpenGL gave any improvements to performance.

    You are right it is an old video card but I repeat before the SSD Unity did not create too many problems. You can see that now the PC is telling me ... you changed the SSD and now I also change the video card ;-) Last test is to force opengl. Can you explain me how to give thanks.

    Perhaps the problem is not the video card, or the OS, or Unity.... and you do indeed have a virus scanner? And.... you scanned with it... and... nothing came up? I'm sorry if that sounds obnoxious - just trying to be sure we have covered all the bases here.

    I followed your advice and updated the system to windows 10. Now the Unity editor is back to being fluid. I'd like to know why, but for the moment it's enough to have it solved.
