Texture Compression

Texture Compression is the act of compressing texture files once they are in the graphics processor's memory buffer. This has two benefits:

- Compressing textures into a GPU's native format lets them be processed far quicker.

- More textures can fit into the buffer, giving a greater range of realism.
