Unity showing the power of data-oriented design 03/11/2018:14:30:10

Unity showed an amazing presentation in Los Angeles and during the Keynote, they showed the power of the data-oriented design approach to game development with a high performance demo running on an iPhone.

Unity has been doing some amazing work over the last few years, and seeing the outcome of their efforts like this is gratifying to say the least. Data-oriented design has always been a good way to move towards performance and scalability, but having a live example running in a public presentation like this will hopefully bring more people on-board the movement as a whole. Thanks to all those who have supported this site over the years, and feel free to suggest any other articles to link to on this front page.
