Model Collision: Balancing Speed and Size in Black Ops Cold War

Andrew Shurney

With the promises of infinite system memory and disk bandwidth devoured by 4k assets, it is once again beneficial to balance performance against utility and memory footprint. Occasionally, however, by taking advantage of ubiquitous hardware features and paying close attention to your data bit by bit, gains can be made on both fronts. This presentation is a technical deep dive into the process of optimizing the high-accuracy model collision in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War to reduce memory footprint to less than one-fifth it’s size while simultaneously conferring a near two-fold speed increase.
