What does texture compression do? Actually, should I switch it on or off for better performance? I have a high end computer

As far as I know, texture compression reduces the space textures occupy while loaded into the video memory, thus giving you lower loading times and slightly better performance at the cost of a slight image quality loss, often unnoticeable. If you don't have problems with the framerate I guess you don't have to check that option.

I'll check again but I think my fps improved after I turned it off? Wasn't it an option for users with graphic cards with less memory?
