memory compression

memory compression

Encoding the contents of memory to take up less space. Similar to data compression, memory compression works with the live contents of memory as it executes instructions and processes data. It works at the lowest levels of the system.

It's an Apple-designed GPU that can do tesselation and multi-layer rendering up to 50 percent faster and provide lossless memory compression. Apple called upon the stage the Chief Game Designer of Bethesda to show off the GPU's capabilities in Elder Scrolls: Blade, a first-person shooter RPG game that'll hit the App Stores later this year (pre-orders have already started).
The other improvements AMD has announced, including a hardware scheduler, primitive discard accelerator, improved triangle throughput, next-generation memory compression (improved from Fiji, which uses GCN 1.2 technology), and the overhauled L2 cache subsystem should all give AMD better graphics performance, while retaining the compute firepower that was already a strength of GCN 1.0 - 1.2.
