Claude 3.5 Sonnet is the best LLM now.

Anthropic released a new model outta nowhere and Claude 3.5 Sonnet is now the best LLM out there. Period. It’s more intelligent and faster than Claude 3 Opus, GPT-4o and Gemini 1.5 Pro. It’s available at 4-5x cheaper than all of those models.

What's going on here?

Anthropic just dropped Claude 3.5 Sonnet, the first release in their upcoming 3.5 model fam. And let's just say, it's raising the bar big time.

What does this mean?

Claude 3.5 Sonnet is Anthropic’s first entry into a new category of models. It is crushing benchmarks left and right. We're talking grad-level reasoning, undergrad-level knowledge, and some seriously slick coding skills. It's twice as fast as Claude 3 Opus but just as affordable, making it perfect for complex jobs like customer support or multi-step workflows.

The vision capabilities got a major boost too. Claude 3.5 Sonnet is a whiz at stuff like reading charts and transcribing text from wonky images. This opens up a whole new world of insights for industries like retail and finance.

But wait, there's more! "Artifacts" just dropped on, letting you create interactable previews with code. Think diagrams, games, one-off apps, and whatnot. It's like having an AI collaborator right there with you.

3.5 Sonnet is also immediately available via the Anthropic API, Amazon Bedrock, and Google Cloud's Vertex AI.

You want more? Anthropic says they have more stuff in the works with Claude 3.5 Haiku and 3.5 Opus coming later this year and features like memory for Claude the chatbot. They are not working on voice mode though (like OpenAI’s GPT-4o).

Why should I care?

It’s simple. OpenAI (and ChatGPT) is no longer the king of the ring. Claude 3.5 Sonnet blows OpenAI’s GPT-4o out of the water and I see Claude (the chatbot) becoming a much more delightful product to use as well. Reminder: Anthropic has recently hired Instagram’s co-founder Mike Krieger as their CPO.

If you're using AI to get work done, Claude 3.5 Sonnet is about to become your new BFF. The combo of high intelligence, speed, and reasonable pricing is a productivity dream.
