Not all AIs work in the cloud, which is why GPU performance is important for some.
NVIDIAwith the support of Microsoft, has announced the latest version of its drivers for your GeForce graphics cards, double the performance of Stable Diffusion Generative Artificial Intelligence.
Stable Diffusion was one of the first generative AIs which became famous even before ChatGPT. It allows turn a text into a realistic drawing or photo.
Most generative artificial intelligence models, such as DALL-E and Midjourney, work in the cloud and they do all the calculations on remote servers. Stable diffusion, on the other hand, can operate in local modewith the sole condition of use a graphics card with at least 8 GB of RAM.
That is why the performance, that is, the time it takes to create an image from text, depends on the power of the graphics card, if you stable spread in local mode.
New NVIDIA drivers and stable diffusion
NVIDIA today released version 532.03 of its drivers for GeForce cards. It includes the usual bug fixes and support for the new RTX 4060 cards, which are going on sale these days.
But the big news is a new technology that makes it possible double the performance of Stable Diffusion.
As explained Tom’s hardware, NVIDIA has integrated a Microsoft tool called Olive. This tool allows you to modify the basic model of artificial intelligence depending on the power of the hardware.
NVDIA claims that Olive is capable of improving the performance of AI operations that take advantage of the RTX Tensor cores present in Nvidia GPUs. Using an Olive-optimized version of the Stable Diffusion text-to-image generator, the yield is multiplied by more than 2.
It’s good news for those who use this generative AI. and an announcement of what is to come. The new NVIDIA GeForce drivers are usually devoted to games, but from now on they will also have to make way for artificial intelligence. You can download this latest optimized version stable diffusion, the 523.23, in the NVIDIA official website.
