Llama 2 7b is swift but lacks depth, making it suitable for basic tasks like summaries or categorization.

Llama 2 13b strikes a balance: it’s more adept at grasping nuances compared to 7b, and while it’s less cautious about potentially offending, it’s still quite conservative. This variant excels in creative endeavors such as crafting stories or poetry, even if slightly slower than 7b.
