Stable Diffusion, GeForce GTX 1650 4GB, Windows 10

I have been trying to get Stable Diffusion working. My Linux workstation has an AMD GPU and that did not work well. I have Dell laptop with a GeForce GTX 1650, with 4GB video RAM, running Windows 10, and I managed to get Stable Diffusion working as expected.

I used this guide.

The key successfactors for this computer are:

  • Use an “optimized” branch, that allows you to generate 512×512 with only 4GB VRAM
  • Dont generate smaller than 512×512 (at least not 256×256)
  • Check [x] full_precision

I wasted a lot of time with non-optimized versions of Stable Diffusion, where I had to go to 256×256 to generate anything, and that anything was always garbage.

It takes about 3 minutes to generate an image with default settings.
