A company Phind has unveiled a new model that achieves coding abilities on par with OpenAI’s massive GPT-4 while running significantly faster. Dubbed the Phind Model V7, this model reaches a score of 74.7% on the HumanEval benchmark for programming tasks, surpassing GPT-4’s previous state-of-the-art results.
Even more impressively, Phind claims their model matches or exceeds GPT-4’s real-world performance on live coding questions, based on feedback from users in their Discord community. The key advantages of the Phind Model seem to be speed and context size.
By optimizing their model to run on NVIDIA H100 GPUs using the new TensorRT-LLM library, Phind has achieved response speeds 5x faster than GPT-4. Where GPT-4 takes 50 seconds to generate an answer, Phind can respond in 10 seconds for the same prompt.
The Phind Model also supports up to 16,000 tokens of context, allowing users to provide long code snippets and detailed explanations as input. This expanded context size likely contributes to the model’s strong performance on practical coding problems.
For software engineers and others who regularly need assistance with coding tasks, Phind’s model could be game-changing. The combination of speed, accuracy, and context size means users can interact with Phind more fluidly than GPT-4, making AI-assisted coding far more practical.
Looking ahead, consistency remains an issue Phind plans to improve. Their model can sometimes take more tries to arrive at the right solution than the very stable GPT-4. But given the rapid pace of innovation in AI coding assistants, tools like Phind are likely to surpass GPT-4 decisively in the near future.
