S3 Graphics S3TC Technology is Adopted in Sony

S3 Graphics said Monday it had made an agreement with Sony Computer Entertainment and Sony Computer Entertainment America for its licensing of S3 Graphics’ S3TC texture compression technology for the upcoming PlayStation Portable console.

S3TC enables high level of compression while maintaining texture detail and quality. This balance of quality and compression becomes even more important for portable applications when efficient use of memory directly impacts the size and quality of software applications and games.
