Now, ChatGPT no longer supports Plus payment.

The reason is simple: High demand . The demand was so high that OpenAI had to suspend sales of the Plus.

It was not stated when it would open afterwards.

A few days ago, ChatGPT caused heated discussions due to the large-scale ban, and now it has officially closed the application for Plus paid membership.

Many netizens attribute it to insufficient computing resources, and it is no longer a problem that can be solved only by money. The gold master father, Microsoft, also needs to provide its own user group.

There is not enough computing power on the planet to meet demand.

Netizens who have already paid expressed their gratitude: It is really impossible to imagine the days of returning to GPT-3.5.

ChatGPT Close Plus Paid

As soon as the news came out, it sparked a heated discussion on Reddit, and related topics reached 570+ discussions.

Many netizens believe that this is not completely without warning. In fact, in the actual experience, the response of GPT-4 is getting slower and slower, and there are many wrong answers.

As expected. 10%-15% of messages have network errors and are at least 200% slower than before.

A ChatGPT API user said that there are a lot of latency errors, which indicates that it is overloaded in many ways.

Ever since, someone directly shouted to Microsoft: Please fulfill your promise and provide more servers.

Prior to this, Microsoft was exposed to have invested hundreds of millions of dollars specifically for ChatGPT, and built a dedicated supercomputer composed of tens of thousands of Nvidia A100s.

Even adjusted the server architecture specifically for this purpose, just to provide better computing power for ChatGPT and the new Bing.

Not only that, Microsoft has deployed hundreds of thousands of GPUs in more than 60 data centers in Azure for ChatGPT reasoning.

But now it seems that computing resources worth hundreds of millions of dollars are not enough.

In addition, on the Microsoft side, some netizens found that Bing was also very slow on Sundays. The OpenAI co-founder also complained that the GPU is not enough. At the end of the day, we are very short on GPUs .

Netizen: New marketing method?

As more netizens discovered that new users cannot update to Plus, some doubts emerged:

Could this be a marketing ploy?

Turn the feature off for a few days first, so people start talking about it.

What do you think about this matter?
