Topaz Sharpen AI 1.4.0
New Feature:
- Intel Optimization (OpenVino) in.
- Now a new option “Enable Intel OpenVino” is in preferences. If you choose “Yes”, it will optimize Intel CPUs and Intel iGPUs for Sharpen. Typically, it will make Sharpen run 5 times faster than the previous “CPU” mode. But we cannot guarantee if it can work for CPUs from other vendors (e.g., AMD) or any Intel CPUs before 6th generation. If you still have very high performance dedicated GPUs (e.g., NVIDIA 1080), “Enable discrete GPU” (Yes) option will be the best choice. However, if you have relatively better Intel CPUs or Intel iGPUs than low performance GPU, you will see faster performance on Intel optimization (Yes)
- Automatic detection for the best devices choice.
- Now you do not have to choose between GPU/CPU or enable/disable Intel optimization manually. Sharpen will automatically run a benchmark and choose the best preferences settings for you to achieve the highest speed on your computer. The benchmark will only be triggered once when you process the first image. Thus, the first image will take longer time than usual.3.

Change:
- Model update.
- The updated AI is trained with an improved algorithm. For Focus and Stabilize mode, it produces much sharper images than previous versions.
