    If you are having performance regressions in your project, file a bug report.
    Otherwise it wont be fixed

    It's becoming a problem how people are being victimized by scam/fraud and sadly enough, it's kind of hard to find someone to trust with the recovery of the funds or whatever have been lost. I'm afraid of getting scammed again especially by clicking any link I come across in the name of investment or recovery of lost funds. Two months ago, I was duped an appreciable amount of the BTC I have. Hired a recovery expert to get my funds back, but unfortunately, I was scammed in the process again. With so much feeling of frustration, I decided to give up everything I lost. Although I reported the case to the FBI but still, no positive outcome. I was so worried and frustrated because it was all I had in my savings plus it feels so hard for me to start saving again. I told everyone I knew about the incident, hoping that help might come. Two weeks later I read about BLISS PARADOX RECOVERY in a magazine, little did I know it was a redemption I found. I decided to take the risk again by consulting them about my lost BTC. I emailed them concerning my issues, and luckily for me, I got a reply from them that same day. Honestly speaking, I never thought I could ever get a positive outcome from the lost BTC. But they got back what I lost within 8 hours. OMG, it still feels like a dream, something too good to be true. I'm so overwhelmed sharing this story because I know there's someone out here with a similar problem seeking help. You can hire BLISS PARADOX RECOVERY, a licensed hack expert for recovery of any fraud. I would like to share the contact details you can reach out to anytime you need help or someone you know who needs help.

    This and the other XR issues linked have been closed, while being reported by multiple people they aren't fixed.

    Unity also moderates the comments to remove discussion these issues remain.

    There is a new big performance issue on the issue tracker. URP team is already made aware and reproduced it themselves (not just QA)

    Here are some other smaller issues that are relevant to VR performance as well:
    Input system optimizations performing worse in VR:
    OculusXR performing worse than OpenXR:
    Graphics Jobs not working on standalone VR:

    However, it is not uncommon for software updates to have varying levels of performance depending on the device being used. Sometimes updates can result in improvements in performance, but in other cases, there may be new features or changes that may negatively impact performance on certain devices.

    I too am still attached to the 2019.4 LTS version.
    In my tests any later version has lower performance.

    It is not understandable or admissible that later versions of Unity have worse performance on the target platforms (Quest in this case, although they also occur in other areas) as this would be the main measure of Unity's improvement, which hurts the most developers and what makes it difficult for them to move to new versions of Unity and use the new features, and I think they are the main problem that Unity should address, above new features, and even bug fixes.

    Tested this myself yesterday. The issue still persists!
    Unity Editor and Builds are noticeably slower in 2022 & 2023.
