    Texture compression

    Is the texture compression on NVIDIA GPUs lossy or lossless ?

    How to specify a lossless texture compression in OpenGL ?

    I am not aware of any lossless compression scheme that still allow efficient random acces of texels...

    Re: Texture compression

    All of the current texture compression methods on GPU's are lossy, all losseless compressions to date have a way to high preformance cost to be practical.
    One can only hope they will add something like that, but i am not gonna hold my breath.
