Which of the different DxO denoising technologies should I use?

This information applies to version(s): All versions

Here is a comparison of the three different denoising technologies offered:

  • HQ: Fast and quality denoising, but offers the lightest amount of denoising among the three methods.
  • PRIME: Strong Analysis of the image, optimal details, and color preservation, no smoothing. The processing time will be longer than HQ, but less than DeepPRIME.
  • DeepPRIME and DeepPRIME XD*: based on artificial intelligence and proposing higher quality results compared to the other two methods. Processing time will vary depending on the user's GPU.

DeepPRIME and DeepPRIME XD are the most advanced denoising technology available today: our neural networks and advanced algorithms will deliver an incredibly high-quality result even for the most difficult shots. If you want to get rid of heavy noise without compromising your image details, this is your best option. DeepPRIME and even more DeedPRIME XD is a very heavy computing process, more than PRIME, but unlike PRIME, it’s GPU accelerated: having a recommended graphics card will greatly improve your overall processing speed!

If your computer doesn’t have a recommended GPU, you can still use DeepPRIME and DeepPRIME XD without compromising output quality, but the processing time will increase significantly.
