If you are already a Swift Performance customer or you are considering becoming one, you might be wondering what is the difference between Swift Performance AI and Swift Performance 2. To avoid any confusion, we are going to address this question and tell you everything you need to know about our products. 

What is Swift Performance AI?

First of all, let’s start with the basics. Let us introduce you to our newest product, Swift Performance AI. This tool is a new-generation WordPress cache plugin. When creating Swift Performance AI, we primarily focused on creating an easy-to-use tool that is effective and gives the best results to our users. Despite its simplicity, we also put a lot of emphasis on making sure that it is able to improve the performance of your web pages without having to worry about sacrificing the quality and the completeness of the results. 

Another important thing to mention is that Swift Performance AI is currently in beta. We have already tested it on more than 100 websites and it is safe to say that it is compatible with most themes and plugins. However, we cannot forget about the fact that there are tens of thousands of plugins and thousands of themes out there. With this in mind, compatibility problems may occur, especially in the early period of launching Swift Performance AI. One thing is sure though if you happen to encounter any problems, never hesitate to reach out to us. We are happy to assist you and offer quick and effective solutions to any issue. 

How is Swift Performance AI different from Swift Performance 2?

Comparing Swift Performance AI to Swift Performance 2, there are two main differences that stand out. The very first difference considers field data, while the second is that this tool is much more intuitive. This means that you won’t have to struggle with settings, as Swift Performance AI will solve practically everything automatically. 

When it came to measuring data, we took a new approach. Swift Performance AI breaks with the common practice of traditional cache plugins which primarily optimize the pages for test tools. Instead, our tool focuses on field data. To put it simply, Swift Performance AI monitors real visitors, ensuring that the Core Web Vitals values of your website are perfectly correct. 

Also, thanks to the automatizations, when adding exceptions to define which javascript can be delayed or which CSS must be added to Critical CSS, you won’t have to add them one by one. We aimed to create a tool that is simple and user-friendly. With less effort, you can be still sure that everything will be automatically optimized to the best possible level.  

In addition, another difference compared to Swift Performance 2 is that in the case of Swift Performance AI the caching process is faster. This can be especially useful for larger sites. Needless to say, even if Swift Performance AI can do more and better than Swift Performance 2, we are still on a mission to constantly improve it so that your site can be the fastest and give the best possible user experience for your customers.

What will happen to my Swift Performance 2 subscription?

Now, there is no reason to worry. If you already have a Swift Performance subscription, we have good news for you. Your subscription will be valid for Swift Performance 2 and Swift Performance AI at the same time. This means that with a single license you will be able to simultaneously use Swift Performance 2 on one of your sites and Swift Performance AI on another. To put it simply, we practically double the number of your licenses!

How can I upgrade to Swift Performance AI?

Since Swift Performance AI is a brand new cache plugin that we created from scratch, it is not possible to simply upgrade from Swift Performance 2 to AI.  To switch your old subscription to a new one, you will need to deactivate Swift Performance 2 and install the Swift Performance AI plugin.
