Use the new version for community: SDXS-512-DreamShaper. It has better quality and is faster.


SDXS is a model that can generate high-resolution images in real-time based on prompt texts, trained using score distillation and feature matching. For more information, please refer to our research paper: SDXS: Real-Time One-Step Latent Diffusion Models with Image Conditions. We open-source the model as part of the research.

SDXS-512-0.9 is a old version of SDXS-512. In order to avoid some possible commercial and copyright risks, the SDXS-512-1.0 and SDXS-1024-1.0 will not be available shortly, and as an alternative we will provide new versions with different teacher DM or offline DM. Watch our repo for any updates.

Model Information:

The main differences between this model and version 1.0 are in three aspects:

  1. This version employs TAESD, which may produce low-quality images when weight_type is float16. Our image decoder is not compatible with the current version of diffusers, so it will not be provided now.
  2. This version did not perform the LoRA-GAN finetune mentioned in the implementation details section, which may result in slightly inferior image details.
  3. This version replaces self-attention with cross-attention in the highest resolution stages, which introduces minimal overhead compared to directly removing them.

Diffusers Usage

import torch
from diffusers import StableDiffusionPipeline, AutoencoderKL

repo = "IDKiro/sdxs-512-0.9"
seed = 42
weight_type = torch.float32     # or float16

# Load model.
pipe = StableDiffusionPipeline.from_pretrained(repo, torch_dtype=weight_type)

# use original VAE
# pipe.vae = AutoencoderKL.from_pretrained("IDKiro/sdxs-512-0.9/vae_large")

prompt = "portrait photo of a girl, photograph, highly detailed face, depth of field, moody light, golden hour"

# Ensure using 1 inference step and CFG set to 0.
image = pipe(
