Zstd is a remarkably good compressor.  I've experimented with it for
compressing column indices for sparse matrices on structured grids and
(after a simple transform: subtracting the row number) gotten
decompression speed in the neighborhood of 10 GB/s (i.e., faster per
core than DRAM).  I've been meaning to follow up.  The transformation
described below (splitting the bytes) is yielding decompression speed
around 1GB/s (in this link below), which isn't competitive for things
like MatMult, but could be useful for things like trajectory
