PC Topaz Sharpen AI Benchmark 2021

Greetings all, I am starting this thread to benchmark our PCs. If you find it interesting, please do participate. I am outlining the procedure below and add a submission sample in a follow-up post.

1. Please use the the current version of Topaz Sharpen AI (v.3.2.2). They offer free trials, in the event you don't have it.

2. Please down load the 8 photos for the benchmark from my Google drive. Many thanks to Jim Kasson and Billy Bob Senna for their photo donation: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1nOH6Po3wfnM5Mu9Hxo-tNMQlTgodN8Y6?usp=sharing

3. Load all 8 files to Topaz Sharpen AI and choose "Motion Blur" and "Very Blurry" in the Image Quality tab. Then in the Settings tab, choose 80 for remove blur, 50 for suppress noise, and 50 for add grain in the post processing tab. Check the "Select All" box in the lower left corner of the screen. An example is shown below:

4. Under the File tab on the upper left, choose the "Preferences" and configure it as shown below. Note that you may want to experiment "Allow Model Downloading" in the last configuration under Preferences to get the best performance for your PC.

5. Press the "Save Images" tab on the lower right corner. It will take you to the "Start Batch Processing" Tab and select "DNG" in the Image Format area. Then click "Start"!

6. After Topaz Sharpen AI finishes the processing, it will show the following screen. Please double check the settings: B: 80, N:50, G:50, Motion, and Very Blurry.

7. Add up the processing times for all 8 photos. In this example, 6+5+20+3+14+14+6+6=74. Respond to this post and use the total processing time as the title. Add the above screenshot for verification and write a short component summary of your PC.
