Gemini 1.5 Performance Enhancements

Google claims that Gemini 1.5 represents a major leap forward, incorporating innovations across various aspects of model development and infrastructure.

The introduction of a new Mixture-of-Experts (MoE) architecture makes Gemini 1.5 more efficient to train and serve.

Gemini 1.5 Pro: Mid-Size Multimodal Model

The initial release of Gemini 1.5 includes Gemini 1.5 Pro, a mid-size multimodal model optimized for scalability across diverse tasks.

Despite its smaller size, Gemini 1.5 Pro delivers performance comparable to 1.0 Ultra and introduces breakthrough features for long-context understanding.

Expanded Context Window and Experimental Features

Gemini 1.5 Pro offers a standard 128,000 token context window, with a limited preview allowing developers and enterprise customers to experiment with up to 1 million tokens.
