Overview and more about BC1-7 compressed texture formats on PC. he newer BC6H and BC7 formats have precise specs that require bit-exact decoding, which means that encoders know exactly what results they’re going to get. The older BC1-5 are a lot more loosely specified, which has been a source of annoyance and problems for BCn encoder authors for some time.
