Claude 3 Model Sizes

Claude 3 large language model family comes in three different sizes. All Claude 3 models offer increased capabilities in analysing user inputs, understanding the nuances of the sentences, generating new, unique, and human-like output, generating code, and understanding non-English languages. The Claude 3 model includes the following sizes:

  • Claude 3 Haiku: It is the fastest, most compact model of the Claude 3 family and produces near-instant output. In addition to the 200K context window, the Claude 3 Haiku model can generate human-like outputs and is ideal for automating basic repetitive tasks. It costs $0.25 for every million token input and $1.25 for every million token output.
  • Claude 3 Sonnet: If you want to complete large-scale and complex inputs more effectively, the Claude 3 Sonnet model is designed for you. Claude 3 Sonnet model is ideal for tasks such as data processing, code generation, and a large amount of data analysis with its 200K context window. It costs $3 for every million token input and $15 for every million token output.
  • Claude 3 Opus: The most advanced model of the Claude 3 family, Opus is designed to complete highly complex tasks and deliver state-of-the-art performance. This model pushes the limits of benchmarks with its 1 million context windows and high-end performance. It costs $15 for every million token input and $75 for every million token output.

Anthropic's Claude 3 models are proficient in understanding the grammar, spelling, sentence structure, idioms, and nuances of non-English languages. The Claude 3 has improved quality and performance in translation, summarization, reasoning in multiple languages, paragraph expanding, cross-lingual understanding, and multilingual input analysis tasks. In particular, the Claude 3 Opus model has shown that it completes multilingual tasks near-perfectly with its high scores in multilingual math and MMLU benchmarks.

Image Processing

All Claude 3 models can analyse visual inputs, extract insights from them, and generate accurate output related to visual inputs. In other words, you can use Claude 3 models to analyse images, turn images into prompts for creative tasks such as home decorating, analyse math problems, and catalogue metadata. However, Claude 3 models only support visual input. You cannot generate any visual output using them.

Adding a visual to your prompt when using Claude 3 models is a simple process. You can upload an image from your desktop by clicking on the paperclip icon or drag and drop the image into the chat box. Afterwards, all Claude 3 models will process the visual you upload while generating output.

Prompt Following

All Claude 3 models are more successful in analysing user input and understanding their intent than the Claude 2 models. Claude 3 models can understand users' nuances and the outputs they need or want with high consistency. In other words, you do not need to use complex and advanced prompts to use Claude 3 models. The main reason for this is that Claude 3 models are more advanced in skills such as reasoning, language understanding and natural language processing.

Context Window

Claude models, which entered our lives with a 100K token context window initially, have been upgraded to a minimum of 200K token context window with the Claude 3 family. In fact, the Claude 3 Opus model allows up to 1 million token context windows in specific use cases.
