Amazon Bedrock Enhances AI Capabilities with Claude 3.5 Sonnet

Anthropic's latest AI model was launched this week and now Amazon is bringing Claude 3.5 Sonnet to its Bedrock cloud platform.


has enhanced its Bedrock service by incorporating Claude 3.5 Sonnet, Anthropic's newest large language model. With this integration, developers gain access to more efficient tools capable of deploying a wide array of applications. The new model, Claude 3.5 Sonnet, demonstrates improved performance, overtaking the high-end Opus variant of 3 and 's GPT-4o in many benchmark tests.

Benchmark Performance and Cost Efficiency

Claude 3.5 Sonnet excels in various performance evaluations, outperforming not only Claude 3 Opus but also other significant models like GPT-4o, Gemini 1.5 Pro, and an early iteration of Llama-400B. Although it shows slightly less efficacy in mathematical problem-solving and the MMLU knowledge benchmark at the undergraduate level, it is still a cost-effective alternative to the Opus model, offering advanced features at a lower price.

Various companies have already started utilizing Claude 3 models through Amazon Bedrock. DoorDash has integrated the technology into its customer support system, enhancing both response times and accuracy. WPP, the largest advertising firm globally, uses the model within its WPP Open marketing platform to drive intelligent marketing operations.
