  • Pricing options for individual users and enterprise

SDXL excels at generating photorealistic images across various categories like portraits, landscapes, and products. The high-resolution outputs can be used for print media, digital content, NFT art and more.

Competitor Comparison

Compared to other generative AI models like DALL-E 2 and Midjourney, SDXL’s focus is on commercial-grade high-resolution image generation which competitors are currently unable to match. The image fidelity is superior for print and digital media use. However, DALL-E offers a more flexible free tier for experimentation.


  • Up to 8K image resolution providing stunning levels of detail and clarity
  • Photorealistic image quality, ensuring lifelike visuals that amaze
  • Fast performance for workflows, maximizing productivity and efficiency
  • Local deployment for security, keeping your data safe and confidential


  • Requires high-end GPU hardware
  • No free tier available
  • Limited to image generation only


With SDXL 1.0, Stability AI has delivered on scalable, high-fidelity image generation that was previously out of reach. For creative professionals and enterprises needing production-ready assets, SDXL represents a major advance. The powerful capabilities do come with higher hardware requirements and costs, limiting smaller users. However, for quality-focused applications, SDXL 1.0 is currently state-of-the-art in AI image generation.
