While I haven’t noticed a decrease in performance as much, I believe other users when they say they do: that in at least some areas GPT 4 is worse now than it was a month to months ago. For me GPT 4 is about as good as when I first subscribed back in September.
With all the reported degradation in GPT 4's performance (at least on Reddit), do you still think ChatGPT Plus is worth it, and much better than GPT 3?
While I have no reason to doubt that some users experience a performance degradation there is something the avid observer will note when following these discussions over time:
For months on end users are coming in and report something like “yesterday/ last week / last month everything was fine but today…”
And this is seemingly independent of the issues caused by high traffic or the random bugs happening every once in a while (plus actual DDOS attacks).
The truth is probably that working with LLMs effectively and consistently is harder than what one would believe after the honeymoon phase.
