I remember last year the pricing docs says gpt-3.5-turbo will soon points to gpt-3.5-turbo-1106 starting Dec 11, 2023. But later (I don’t know when) the doc has changed, and gpt-3.5-turbo still points to gpt-3.5-turbo-0613.
Just wondering if there is a period gpt-3.5-turbo actually pointed to 1106, or this never happens.
You have a good memory, and this model was originally as optimistic about being a replacement stable model upon release, as the schedule announced for the upcoming 0125 model is also optimistic.
However, significant issues were quickly discovered in 1106 models, so the plan to have it be a replacement were abandoned. The model was required for assistants and parallel tool calls, which also seemed rushed, and are still without a gpt-3.5-turbo-tools replacement yet.
I see. It would be less confusing if the doc could come with a revision history. Thanks a lot for your detailed explanation!
