Mistral AI said it released Mistral Large, a next-gen text generation model that's designed to be on par with OpenAI's ChatGPT, Anthropic's Claude 2 and Google's Gemini Pro. Mistral AI said Mistral Large will be available on Microsoft Azure.

The Mistral Large launch with Azure availability follows AWS' announcement that Mistral AI models would be coming to Amazon Bedrock to join models from AI21 Labs, Anthropic, Cohere, Meta, Stability AI and Amazon. Amazon Bedrock will carry Mistral 7B, Mistral AI's first foundation model, and Mistral 8x7B, which can summarize text, answer questions, and generate code.

For Mistral AI, Azure and AWS can give the company more distribution for its models, which seem to be advancing almost weekly. Enterprises have been evaluating multiple models including smaller ones that are use case specific. Meanwhile, regulators have been looking into generative AI investments and partnerships such as Microsoft's deal with OpenAI.

Mistral Large is fluent in English, French, Spanish, German and Italian and has a 32K token context window. Mistral AI said it will first bring Mistral Large to Azure, which is most closely associated with OpenAI's ChatGPT. Hyperscalers are racing to offer model choices to enterprises. Mistral Large is also available on Mistral infrastructure La Plateforme in Europe.

Although Mistral Large and the Azure deal will garner the headlines. Mistral AI also said it launched Mistral Small, which is optimized for performance, latency and costs.
