Nous Hermes 2 Mixtral 8x7B


Hermes 2 Pro Mistral 7B


Mistral 7B Instruct v0.2


Throughput(output tokens per second)96
Latency(seconds to first tokens chunk received)0.33
Total Response Time(seconds to output 100 tokens)1.6

The model demonstrates high throughput, capable of handling numerous concurrent users, and low latency, making it ideal for real-time applications. However, it may not be optimal for tasks requiring extremely quick total response times.


The cost of running the model with Telnyx Inference is $0.0003 per 1,000 tokens. To put this into perspective, analyzing 1,000,000 customer chats, assuming each chat is 1,000 tokens long, would cost $300.
