Anthropic Launches Claude 3.5 Sonnet, Claims to Surpass GPT 4o

The new model costs $3 per million input tokens and $15 per million output tokens, with a 200K token context window. Its cost-effective pricing and twice the operational speed of Claude 3 Opus make it ideal for complex tasks such as context-sensitive customer support and orchestrating multi-step workflows.

Anthropic launched a new AI model, the Claude 3.5 Sonnet, in the Claude 3.5 series. The company claims it surpasses current industry standards in AI intelligence.

The Claude 3.5 Sonnet is available for free on Claude.ai and the Claude iOS app. Further, Anthropic would allow Claude Pro and Team Plan subscribers to access it with significantly higher rate limits. The AI model is also available via the Anthropic API, Amazon Bedrock, and Google Cloud’s Vertex AI.

Anthropic claimed that Claude 3.5 Sonnet surpasses competitor models like GPT4.o and Gemini 1.5 Pro, Meta’s Llama 3 400B, and even its predecessor, Claude 3 Opus, on a wide range of evaluations.

The announcement highlighted that the new model costs $3 per million in input tokens and $15 per million in output tokens, with a 200K token context window.

“The Claude 3.5 Sonnet represents a significant advancement in large language models, featuring notable improvements across key metrics,” said Prabhu Ram, Head of the Industry Intelligence Group at CyberMedia Research. “It boasts double the processing speed of its predecessor, Claude Opus, at a fraction of the cost.”

In a statement, Anthropic said, “It shows marked improvement in grasping nuance, humor, and complex instructions and is exceptional at writing high-quality content with a natural, relatable tone.”

Operating at twice the speed of Claude 3 Opus, with cost-effective pricing, makes the Sonnet ideal for complex tasks such as context-sensitive customer support and orchestrating multi-step workflows, the company stated.

Additionally, the Claude 3.5 Sonnet is a master in code manipulation and understanding. As per an internal evaluation report, the model solved 64% of problems related to bug fixing and functionality additions with open-source codebases, significantly better than Claude 3 Opus’ 38% success rate.

Moreover, Anthropic claimed that the Sonnet is its strongest vision model so far, surpassing the Claude 3 Opus on the standard vision benchmark. This capacity can prove beneficial for the retail, logistics, and financial services industries, where visual data holds more insights than text.
