Compression Is key.
Three areas are making there way onto the scene
Grouping compression.
Advance reduced precision compression.
and lossless and or lossy non-linear compression has a some hopes of being useful one day.
I can get random 16 wide Integer groups down to half size consistently using Twin Bifurcation but that's before adding a codec, If with a codec added If I can sustain a quarter compression then the method would be workable for thousands of multiple Passes due to the non-linear nature of the method.
