Fine tuning Stable Diffusion XL (SDXL) with interruptible GPUs and LoRA for low cost

Fine tuning stable diffusion XL (SDXL) for low cost with Interruptible GPUs and LORA

It’s no secret that training image generation models like Stable Diffusion XL (SDXL) doesn’t come cheaply. The original Stable Diffusion model cost $600,000 USD to train using hundreds of enterprise-grade A100 GPUs for more than 100,000 combined hours. Fast forward to today, and techniques like Parameter-Efficient Fine Tuning (PEFT) and Low-Rank Adaptation (LoRA) allow us […]
