Topaz Video Enhance AI benchmarks on Apple website!

I was looking at the Mac Studio M2 Max/Ultra specs website and I noticed that it has Topaz Video Enhance benchmarks under video processing. I thought that was interesting.

Will be interesting to see real life benchmarks from users.


As I suspected, the small print states the tests were for upscaling HD sources. Apple should be embarrassed, if not ashamed, at the M1 / M2 performance when upscaling SD sources. I would very much like to hear some technical, but understandable, explanation from Topaz why upscaling SD on Apple Silicon is so inefficient.

From the Topaz benchmarks, all other systems (Intel Macs and PCs) show almost exactly proportional performance between SD and HD upscaling.



How much money Topaz Labs LLC must have paid to Apple to appear on a measly performance chart that few people will ever see. :joy:

@sergiohzph We do not pay Apple nor do we ask them to create or share benchmarking. Apple posts these types of articles based on what apps their user pool is using and are excited about.
