Your hardware? Your performance?

Please describe what hardware you use Topaz Video AI with and what performance it produces?

  1. CPU
  2. RAM
  3. GPU
  4. AI Model, parameter: video resolution in->out - fps, video resolution in->out - fps, video resolution in->out - fps

My datas:

  1. Intel Core i9-12900K (core)
  2. 2 x KINGSTON FURY 16GB Renegade DDR5 6400MHz CL32
  4. Proteus, auto: 720x576->fullHD - max. 26 fps (avg. 25 fps), 720x576->4k - max. 5 fps (avg. 4 fps)

Victus by HP 15L Gaming Desktop
Processor AMD Ryzen 7 5700G with Radeon Graphics, 3800 Mhz, 8 Core(s),
Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 32.0 GB
Video resolution in->out - Unk

Runs well and process is completed in seconds. Tweaks are sometimes required because autopilot is a bit aggressive but right now no complaints on 2.3.2 or 2.4.0

Your machine is precisely double the speed of mine. I manage about 12 - 13 fps going from PAL SD to Full HD with Proteus on Auto (I did muck around with manual settings but Auto produces the best result). My machine is very modest by today’s standards though:

Ryzen 2700X

16 Gigs RAM

ASUS B450 mainboard

Nvidia RTX2600 Super with 8 Gigs onboard RAM

I get 35-40 fps upconverting/deinterlacing DVD content to 1080p @25fps.
Only a change of GPU affects the speed.
I have tried increasing CPU frequency, even changing it to i7 11th gen, no change in speed to speak of. Also 16GB RAM is exactly the same. SSD or not, no change.
My cuda cores max out, and that is how I get my speed.
An AMD 5700 gave me about 60% speed of the Nvidia. But we are not comparing like for like.

I would like to know if it would be worth investing in a more expensive, more powerful video card? Will there be such an increase in performance (fps) that it is worth paying the price of a more expensive VGA? I would switch from RTX 3080 to 4080 or 4070ti. In my country these video cards are very expensive.

the easiest way to find out for sure is to find someone with a similar setup and let him process a test file with the settings of your choice. :slight_smile:

CPU i9 13900K
GPU RTX 4090
AI Model Iris MQ,
parameter: rta 25,100,75,0,0,0,0,0,
video resolution ->in 1728 x 720 ->out 1920 x 800 - 24 fps


Yes, that’s why I started this topic. Your fps really surprises me. It seems very little. It might be because of the AI model. Maybe you could do a test with these settings for me?:

I get 36 fps during test for the 1080p upscale. :slight_smile:

and 13,5 fps for the 4 k upscale:

Wow! Thank you very much!

Here’s my setup. Not going to say what FPS I’m getting because I didn’t look at it for this test.
Topaz Video AI v4.2.1
System Information
OS: Windows v11.23
CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 7900X 12-Core Processor 31.688 GB
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti 11.715 GB
RAM 32GB at 5600Mhz with timings at 46-45-45.

I have a 25 minute episode ripped from a DVD. I cut the introduction and credits, then run Nyx Fast with relative to auto settings. Then I run Proteus Relative to Auto upscaling to FHD. Then I convert the images to H.265 with the software encoder and join all the sound subtitles and chapters back in.

Here’s the first run:

Cut time: 0:11:27.71
Starting denoise pass.
 time: 0:13:01.83
Running total: 0:24:29.54

Starting enhancement pass.
 time: 0:16:51.34
Running total: 0:41:20.89

Starting final pass.
 time: 0:16:34.54
Total time: 0:57:59.63

Then I changed out the RAM for some new fancy sticks:
32GB at 6000Mhz with timings at 36-38-38.

Here’s the same script ran again:

Cut time: 0:11:04.27
Starting denoise pass.
 time: 0:12:24.31
Running total: 0:23:28.59

Starting enhancement pass.
 time: 0:16:08.20
Running total: 0:39:36.80

Starting final pass.
 time: 0:16:20.43
Total time: 0:56:01.81

Only the denoise and enhancement passes use TVAI, but those get sped up by a little bit too.
So uhh… better RAM saves me 2 minutes on a ~23 minute show. That will add up the more shows I process.

I’m disappointed. :frowning: For my configuration I bought a Gigabyte GAMING OC RTX 4090 24GB VGA, but with the same settings, I only achieved a maximum of 28 fps instead of 36 fps in fullHD. I don’t know what the problem might be. If I run 2 processes at the same time, then the maximum is 16-16 fps (=32 fps), which is a little better, but far from what I expected. VGA is perfect by the way, it provides brutal performance in games and other software, it does what is expected, so VGA is not the problem. Would the processor difference matter that much (13900k vs. 12900k)?

Good morning.
I am first time using this wonderful program, I am asking how to run the benchmark and where to prevel the log file.

You find the Benchmark in the top menu under “Process”.

Okay. Thank you very much
