Unlock Affordable and Accessible Stable Diffusion Generation with Salad

February 24, 2023

Salad offers developers an easy-to-use and fully managed Inference API for Sable Diffusion. With Salad Inference Endpoints API, developers can scale their inferences infinitely without worrying about configuring their infrastructure. In fact, our recent Stable Diffusion 2.1 benchmark proves that Salad is the most cost-effective solution among similar “one-click deployment” services.

Generate more than 1000 images per dollar, and only pay for what you need! Scale from 10,000 images per hour, to zero, and back again!

The secret to our savings and elasticity lies in our unique recipe: community cloud. SaladCloud is a fully people-powered alternative to traditional cloud services. With over 10,000+ consumer GPUs available at any moment, our infrastructure offers high availability, top performance, and scalable container solutions for a fraction of the cost.

Salad’s Stable Diffusion 2.1 Benchmark Parameters

To ensure an accurate comparison we kept our benchmark consistent across providers. We used these same parameters for each test:

  • Model: Stable Diffusion 2.1
  • Image Size: 512 x 512
  • Inference Steps: 50
  • Identical text prompt
  • Identical seed
  • Guidance Scale: 7.5
  • Precision: FP 16

Furthermore, each of these services represent a true one-click deployment: fully-managed and serverless. If you’re interested in launching your own models and saving even more on deployment, check our pricing for Salad Container Engine instead. With SCE, you can achieve 3000+ images per dollar!
