Well ... but for the compression algorithms I know, there is only a
difference in the needed computing power of the compression levels for
the compressing host. Normally it's just a setting, that changes how big
the blocks are, that are checked for data patterns being contained twice
(and don't need to be stored a second time, just a pointer is stored
then). As well as maybe influencing how many data is used to generate
But on the decompressing side, this doesn't make any difference in
needed computing power / battery time.
