Victor Luchitz has released a short paper discussing how he applied an adaptive data caching architecture to Doom 32x: Resurrection and sped up the games rendering pipeline by 30%. This is a follow up to his previous release about renderer, coding and platform optimizations. The paper also includes a a nice overview of the Sega 32x’s hardware storage types and compares their performance.
