NVIDIA has developed a new compression technique called "Neural Texture Compression" (NTC) that delivers a level of quality that comes closer to what's seen in uncompressed, reference assets, according to a new NVIDIA Research feature titled "Random-Access Neural Compression of Material Textures." Per a comparison image that NVIDIA researchers shared, NTC provides a 4x higher resolution when compared to the BC (block compression) high method, which is pretty neat in itself, but what's even more remarkable is that it's able to accomplish this while using 30% less memory. More comparisons of the new compression method, which may or may not be exclusive to future GeForce GPUs, can be found here.
