Stable Diffusion is a neural model that generates high-quality images from a given input data. It can also be applied to tasks such as inpainting, outpainting, and generating image-to-image translations guided by a text prompt.

Stable Diffusion is a type of diffusion model, which is a generative model that uses a stochastic process to simulate the behaviour of variables over time. The model is trained on large datasets of texts and images, which allows it to learn how to generate high-quality images that match the user intent. The model is also capable of learning how to generate images that are semantically meaningful and visually coherent.

You may be wondering does Stable Diffusion work with AMD GPU. In this article, we’ll answer this question and will also provide a FAQ section at the end.

Stable Diffusion: Does it work with AMD?

According to the Stable Diffusion website, in the answer to the question ‘What kinds of GPUs will be able to run Stable Diffusion, and at what settings?’, the company answered that most Nvidia and AMD GPUs with 6GB or more.

Thus, according to the company, you should have no problems running Stable Diffusion with an AMD graphics card. If you have a VRAM of more than 4GB along with the following AMD graphics card, you will have no issues in running Stable Diffusion on your computer:

  • RX 470
  • RX 570
  • RX 6600 XT
  • RX 6650 XT
  • RX 6600
  • RX 6700 XT
  • RX 6750 XT
  • RX 6800
  • RX 6800 XT
  • RX 6900 XT

If you have any of the above-mentioned AMD GPUs, you can run Stable Diffusion easily.

What are the minimum system requirements to run Stable Diffusion?

Firstly, you should have a 64-bit operating system with at least 8 GB RAM. If you currently possess a configuration below these standards, you will face a lot of hassles in running Stable Diffusion.

As far as hard disk storage is considered, you must have at least 10 to 12 GB of hard drive or a Solid State Drive (SSD) space.

Can Stable Diffusion work without GPU?

Yes, you can run Stable Diffusion without GPU solely on CPU power. OpenVINO is one such tool developed by Intel that can be used to run Stable Diffusion without GPU.
