Benchmarks and performance of Llama 2
Llama 2 outperforms other models in various benchmarks, even with the smaller 7 billion parameter model.
It excels in natural language understanding and question-answering tasks, scoring higher than its competitors.
The larger 70 billion parameter model of Llama 2 surpasses all the benchmarks by a significant margin.
“If you see the benchmarks, Llama 2 is ahead of other models. Even the 7 billion parameter model outperforms its competitors. In natural language understanding and question-answering tasks, Llama 2 scores higher. And when you go with the larger 70 billion parameter model, Llama 2 crushes everybody else in the list.”
