>In this video, I will compare the newly released SDXL 1.0 checkpoint to both base Stable Diffusion 1.5 and top tier Stable Diffusion 1.5 checkpoints to see how they compare.
I start out by discussing the architecture of SDXL compared with SD 1.5 to see how they compare on paper.
Afterwards, I show the results of extensive testing in Automatic1111 and ComfyUI comparing SDXL to SD 1.5 in terms of maximum image size, generation speed, and VRAM requirements. And finally, do quality testing to see where SDXL is in terms of hand quality and the maximum practical image size compared to SD 1.5.
