MesaFX for example uses this to display bigger textures on a Voodoo3. It can handle only up to 256x256 textures, so MesaFX cuts the big ones into "tasty" bits. :D

rescaling means lowering the texture resolution to 256*256.this is what mesafx does.
resizing means splitting the texture to smaller pieces..
