DXT vs. non-DXT textures and performance question.

Recommended Posts

Guest qballbandit

Hi guys, I am curious. Reading through various threads over time I have seen some of you respond howe on some systems/set-ups non-DXT may give better performance compared to DXT textures. I have tried both using 256 sets. It's hard for me to tell, because the weather, or clouds actually have been different due to the metars. Sometimes I think "non" is better, sometimes "dxt" seems better. Not sure what my literal question is, but thought maybe you can give me some insight to why you think your default non-DXT textures could actually perform better under certain circumstances. I apologize ahead of time if I misunderstood what you were trying to convey in these posts, but thought I had understood your point.Thanks!Neil :)

Hi,The non-literal answer to your non-literal question is that this whole thing is very machine and hardware specific, and that there is no answer. That is why we say to try both ways!!Hope this helps,Jimhttp://www.hifisim.com/Active Sky V6 Development TeamActive Sky V6 Proud SupporterHiFi Beta TeamRadar Contact Supporter
