Texture Compression

This talk focuses on the current state of the art in practical (general purpose) lossless data compression and GPU texture compression. On the lossless front, a new breed of codecs (such as LZHAM, Zstd, Brotli, Kraken) carefully optimized to strike a practical balance between very high compression ratios and high decompression performance have been released. This talk will show how these new codecs perform across a wide variety of inputs. There are also several new developments in the specialized GPU texture compression space, such as rate distortion optimization (RDO), transcoding, and multiformat ("universal") encoding methods. This talk will explain the details behind these technologies, and also show some of our latest work on "Basis", a new GPU texture compression library we're creating at Binomial.
