Topaz Labs Gigapixel – one of Topaz Labs’ most advanced Gigapixels. Most popular upscaling applications on the market. And now, Topaz Labs released the largest update Gigapixel had in over a year – Gigapixel 7. Gigapixel 7 has many improvements and new features, from UI upgrades to an updated AI engine.

New AI models

Topaz Labs Gigapixel 7 new AI models

Topaz has added two new AI models, Standard V2 (and High Fidelity) V2. These are new versions of existing Standard and High Fidelity Models. The new models will not replace the standard and high fidelity modes for now. You can still choose older V1 models in the AI models panel.

According to Topaz Labs Gigapixel 7 features the following improvements:

  • For Standard, we’ve improved the deblur consistency (blurry patch issue).
  • For High Fidelity, we’ve improved the grain-preserving consistency for low denoise/remove jpeg sliders.
    • If you need to maintain the original grain/noise, choose this model and adjust the two sliders.
  • For High Fidelity, we’ve fixed the tile blending artifacts.
  • For both models, we’ve fixed the tile artifacts on Apple Silicon Mac’s Neural Engine.
    • Photo offers the option to disable Neural Engine. However, this will slow processing.
  • In general, models should be more generative to improve quality
