Notably, the platform has optimized its training process through a custom distributed training framework built on JAX, Rust, and Kubernetes. This framework includes a specialized training coordinator that identifies and removes problematic nodes automatically.

As for availability, Grok-1.5 is initially accessible to X (formerly Twitter) Premium+ subscribers, with plans to extend access to early testers and existing Grok users soon. The rollout to a broader audience is anticipated to be gradual.

In case you want to avail the X Premium+ subscription, you can choose between a basic subscription, which is $1, X Premium, or Verified Organization.

But don’t worry because this fee is a one-time charge, meaning you won’t have to pay $1 in your second or third year of using the platform. You can also choose to cancel your subscription at any time after the initial $1 fee in case you changed your mind.

Grok-1.5 will soon be available to early testers! Curious about the capabilities of Grok-1.5?
