Photomaker Optimization: Faster API and Lower Costs

Photomaker Optimization: Faster API and Lower Costs

We've significantly improved our Photomaker API, achieving a remarkable 45% increase in speed compared to the previous version and cutting serving costs by nearly 50%. These enhancements greatly enhance the efficiency and affordability of our services, providing users with faster responses and lower expenses.

To achieve this, we've introduced a new parameter called "optimize," which accepts a Boolean value. Setting it to True enables the model to operate in a highly optimized mode, significantly boosting processing speed.

Performance Improvements Overview

Our optimizations have been extensively tested across various scenarios and step counts. The outcomes demonstrate considerable performance improvements, with speed enhancements ranging from 26.06% to 44.77% across different samples and step counts.

Detailed Speed Improvements by Steps and Samples

Samples 30 Steps (% Faster) 40 Steps (% Faster) 50 Steps (% Faster)
1 26.06% 29.22% 31.02%
2 34.40% 36.32% 41.94%
3 39.02% 42.96% 44.77%

2x High-Speed, 50% Lower-Cost, Quality Uncompromised
