But the problem then goes back to which version of SD I'm running. Again, Automatic 1111 on Windows only works with Nvidia cards. Period. I tested all of those, as you can see, down to the GTX 1660 Super that was so slow I didn't feel the need to go further. With --medvram (something like that), even 6GB Nvidia cards can do the 2048x1152 testing... though I have to admit that with the new version, I'm not entirely sure what's being done — is it using IMG2IMG to fill in the details at higher resolutions, or is it doing some form of upscaling? Anyway, until I can get Automatic 1111's version running on AMD and Intel cards, testing at more customized settings is the biggest problem.I honestly think that the actual outcome of an image should be irrelevant (many people not even use SD for making people, you can also just use a prompt like: generic plain backgropund filled with 100 different objects randomly with randomk colors, it doesn't matter really) as I thought you were testing performance, not the results whether it looks great or not, and furthermore it's quite obvious that some lower end cards can't create anmy image of 1024 or higher due lack of vram. That being said, I still vouch for a 768x768, 1024x1024 and even a 1280x1280 performance test, and enable "low memory" card option in the settings of auto1111, which is for cards 8,9,10,11 gb vram and for the test itself do only batch size = 1, and batch count = 40
Furthermore its also interesting to see (being my favourite HARDWARE TEST site, to mention which cards actually failed the test actually, I know quite a BIG group of people looking around now and who want to see for example how far the 4070ti can take it in terms of max resolution for a single batch of images,as it is mighty fast (your test shows faster than 3090 and even faster than the 3090ti), but those 2 powerfull cards with double the amount of vram, might be able to easily do lets say 1280x1280, while the 4070ti simply gets a memory error.
Anyways, i love the post and your results, thanks for sharing, and i hope there will be an update soon with additional test results
But I do have the above VoltaML to try on AMD. We'll see how that goes. Maybe it will be faster than the SHARK version I've been running, but I suspect not on the 7000-series.
