OpenCL dds compression

DDS compression it's a complex task for CPU, but it can be accelerated on GPU. We use our internal DDS compressor which produces nice quality image. With small quality degradation we can port this algorithm on GPU and obtain 18x performance gain.

Name: GeForce GTX 260
Vendor: NVIDIA Corporation
Version: OpenCL 1.0 CUDA

  1. да, отлично работает.

  2. Interesting, can you guys provide some more details about your DDS compression algorithm? Is it real-time compression that you are aiming for, or offline compression? Is your algorithm based on the CUDA DXT compressor?
