Default Topaz Gigapixel 2.0 released: 5x faster

As expected, Topaz is continuing to improve A.I. Gigapixel with the new version (2.0.0) making a huge breakthrough in performance.

Topaz says, "Using GPU mode is now 5x faster! With some optimizations to the GPU processing in A.I. Gigapixel, we've improved the speed of processing by around 5x on full-size images (it scales based on the size of your image, so a small image might be 3x) with the same 1-2 million calculations per pixel and the same amazing results."

People who have tried Gigapixel have mentioned the unsurpassed quality of the results, but also the loooooong time it took to get them. So this new speed boost is welcome news.

New Features:
•Improved processing speed increased up to 5X

Bug Fixes:
•Made Cancel terminate processing immediate and clears the image list

•Note: Topaz is not promoting a coupon code or discount for A.I. Gigapixel but see my blog post to save 15% off the retail price (this discount also applies to ALL Topaz products). The latest update is FREE for existing users, as per Topaz's longstanding policy for all of its software.

Is your computer too old to run Gigapixel?

I just tested on a 2008 MacBook Pro running Mojave (yes!), 4 gigs RAM, SSD. It works!
