Image Compression Overview
Bandwidth-saving solutions for GPU
Nothing beats the latest 3D graphics effects running smoothly on high resolution screens. However, a lot of data needs to move about a chip in order to shade each pixel in the right colour. If not managed appropriately this places a significant burden on system memory.
Image compression and decompression technologies enable the GPU to produce stunning graphics while minimising system memory requirements and gives chip designers the opportunity to optimise the overall silicon area of their solution
