Inside the World of GPT-4?

If you’re lucky enough to have early GPT-4 access through OpenAI Playground, you’ll see a screen similar to the one below.


GPT-4 is available in the Model dropdown when you filter the mode to ‘Chat’.

There are a few known models of GPT-4, including GPT-4 and GPT-4-32k, and something else called GPT-4-0314. GPT-4-0314 won’t be updated after June 2023. Depending on your needs, if you want the most up-to-date information, it’s best to use GPT-4. However, some users may prefer a stable model without changes, making GPT-4-0314 a suitable choice.

As we dig deeper, we find significant differences between GPT-4 and GPT-4-32k, especially regarding context length. GPT-4-32k has an impressive context length of 32,768 tokens, four times greater than the base GPT-4 model.

Some unreleased GPT-4 versions can interpret images, and according to sources, the most advanced version can generate up to 25,000 words.

With 25,000 words, you can create a detailed thesis, an engaging novel, or an extensive document like a policy paper or business proposal. The possibilities for creating in-depth, impactful documents are vast with GPT-4.

GPT4: The Luxury Car of AI

If you haven’t had a chance to test the more advanced GPT-4 versions, you might feel disappointed when you first see the maximum token size in Playground is 2048.
