Navigating the Landscape: A Comprehensive Comparison of LLM Providers


In today's dynamic landscape of Generative AI, a plethora of Large Language Models (LLMs) have emerged, each offering unique capabilities and applications. From OpenAI's GPT series to Google's Gemini and beyond, the diversity of LLMs reflects the dynamic nature of this field. With new models continually being developed and existing ones refined, the space is ever-evolving, presenting both opportunities and challenges for users seeking to harness the power of these advanced language models. At RapidCanvas, we recognize the importance of understanding how each LLM performs across a range of tasks and scenarios. Through rigorous testing and evaluation, we aim to provide insights into the strengths, limitations, and comparative performance of different LLMs, empowering users to make informed decisions and unlock the full potential of Generative AI technologies.



Our approach involved conducting comprehensive tests to evaluate the performance of different Large Language Models (LLMs) across two key tasks: data summarization and code generation. These tasks were chosen to assess the LLMs' abilities in processing and generating textual information, covering both natural language understanding and generation capabilities.

1. Summarizing the Data

  • Data Collection: We curated diverse datasets covering various domains and languages.
  • Summarization Technique: LLMs were utilized to generate concise summaries of the input text.
  • Evaluation Criteria: The quality of generated summaries were assessed for accuracy.

2. Generating the Code

  • Task: The LLMs were tasked with generating syntactically correct and semantically meaningful code snippets.
  • Evaluation Criteria: Code quality was evaluated based on correctness, efficiency, and adherence to programming best practices.
  • Benchmarking: Fixed tests were designed to compare the accuracy and consistency of code generated by different LLMs.

Key Findings

Over the past few months of regular testing, we have observed intriguing developments in the performance of different Large Language Models (LLMs). While ChatGPT once dominated the landscape with its superior accuracy, recent tests indicate a shifting landscape. Claude and Mistral have shown significant improvements and are now closing the gap, demonstrating comparable levels of accuracy in tasks such as data summarization and code generation. This evolution highlights the dynamic nature of the Generative AI space, where advancements in model architectures, training techniques, and fine-tuning strategies are continually shaping the performance landscape of LLMs.

Performance Metrics

We run each model against 143 test cases. A case is termed a failure when an LLM is unable to generate any valid Python code.



One of the primary challenges in working with Large Language Models (LLMs) lies in their setup and deployment. While connecting to hosted LLMs has generally been straightforward, thanks to user-friendly APIs and clear documentation, setting up local LLMs presents its own set of hurdles. While the process of deploying local LLMs is becoming more streamlined, it often requires significant hardware resources, making it prohibitive for some users. However, recent advancements in hardware technology and software optimization have made local deployment more accessible than ever before. Additionally, cloud-managed services offer a compelling solution, providing the best of both worlds by offering the convenience of hosted solutions with the flexibility and control of local deployment.

Result Validation

Validating results obtained from Large Language Models (LLMs) posed several challenges, especially when assessing text prompt responses. While validating code for syntax correctness and checking code outputs in the form of structured data was relatively straightforward, ensuring the accuracy and relevance of text prompt responses proved to be more intricate. Unlike structured code outputs, text responses require nuanced evaluation, considering factors such as coherence, relevance, and contextual appropriateness. To overcome this challenge, we developed a validation process that involved keyword search and manual inspection. By leveraging keyword matching techniques and human judgment, we were able to effectively assess the quality and fidelity of text prompt responses, albeit with additional time and effort investment.


The landscape of Large Language Models (LLMs) is undeniably vibrant and active, with innovation occurring at a rapid pace. With each passing day, new advancements, updates, and iterations propel the field forward, presenting fresh opportunities and challenges alike. At this juncture, we observe an intriguing competition between ChatGPT and Claude, with both LLMs emerging as frontrunners, neck and neck in terms of performance and capabilities. However, the journey of exploration and discovery is far from over. We eagerly anticipate testing newer versions of LLMs and witnessing how they continue to push the boundaries of innovation, driving progress and transformative change in the field of Generative AI.
