Photo AI should parallelize across photos

I have a 12 core CPU and an RTX 2060 Super GPU, so state of the art about four years ago. When processing a batch of photos, CPU usage mostly hovers in the 25-35% range, with GPU in the 3-10% range. I conclude that Photo AI could be doing 4 photos in parallel before hitting diminishing returns, and finish almost 4x as fast.

We will be working on improving our efficiency with newer graphics cards soon.

It’s also possible that your VRAM is used up and Topaz Photo AI is not able to bring in more data to process.

Could you open task manager and check your VRAM usage when processing an image in Topaz Photo AI?

I upgraded to a 3090 with 3x as much vram. Still seeing similar behavior – CPU 25-35%, GPU 3-10%. GPU drivers are up to date.
