CodeLlama 7B Instruct - AWQ


This repo contains AWQ model files for Meta's CodeLlama 7B Instruct.

About AWQ

AWQ is an efficient, accurate and blazing-fast low-bit weight quantization method, currently supporting 4-bit quantization. Compared to GPTQ, it offers faster Transformers-based inference.

It is also now supported by continuous batching server vLLM, allowing use of AWQ models for high-throughput concurrent inference in multi-user server scenarios. Note that, at the time of writing, overall throughput is still lower than running vLLM with unquantised models, however using AWQ enables using much smaller GPUs which can lead to easier deployment and overall cost savings. For example, a 70B model can be run on 1 x 48GB GPU instead of 2 x 80GB.

Provided files and AWQ parameters

For my first release of AWQ models, I am releasing 128g models only. I will consider adding 32g as well if there is interest, and once I have done perplexity and evaluation comparisons, but at this time 32g models are still not fully tested with AutoAWQ and vLLM.

Models are released as sharded safetensors files.

Serving this model from vLLM

Documentation on installing and using vLLM can be found here.

  • When using vLLM as a server, pass the --quantization awq parameter, for example:
python3 python -m vllm.entrypoints.api_server --model TheBloke/CodeLlama-7B-Instruct-AWQ --quantization awq

When using vLLM from Python code, pass the quantization=awq parameter, for example:

from vllm import LLM, SamplingParams

prompts = [
    "Hello, my name is",
    "The president of the United States is",
    "The capital of France is",
    "The future of AI is",
sampling_params = SamplingParams(temperature=0.8, top_p=0.95)

llm = LLM(model="TheBloke/CodeLlama-7B-Instruct-AWQ", quantization="awq")

outputs = llm.generate(prompts, sampling_params)

# Print the outputs.
for output in outputs:
    prompt = output.prompt
    generated_text = output.outputs[0].text
    print(f"Prompt: {prompt!r}, Generated text: {generated_text!r}")

How to use this AWQ model from Python code

Install the necessary packages

Requires: AutoAWQ 0.0.2 or later

pip3 install autoawq

If you have problems installing AutoAWQ using the pre-built wheels, install it from source instead:

pip3 uninstall -y autoawq
git clone https://github.com/casper-hansen/AutoAWQ
cd AutoAWQ
pip3 install .

You can then try the following example code

from awq import AutoAWQForCausalLM
from transformers import AutoTokenizer

model_name_or_path = "TheBloke/CodeLlama-7B-Instruct-AWQ"

# Load model
model = AutoAWQForCausalLM.from_quantized(model_name_or_path, fuse_layers=True,
                                          trust_remote_code=True, safetensors=True)
tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained(model_name_or_path, trust_remote_code=True)

prompt = "Tell me about AI"
prompt_template=f'''[INST] Write code to solve the following coding problem that obeys the constraints and passes the example test cases. Please wrap your code answer using ```:


print("\n\n*** Generate:")

tokens = tokenizer(

# Generate output
generation_output = model.generate(

print("Output: ", tokenizer.decode(generation_output[0]))

# Inference can also be done using transformers' pipeline
from transformers import pipeline

print("*** Pipeline:")
pipe = pipeline(



The files provided are tested to work with AutoAWQ, and vLLM.

Huggingface Text Generation Inference (TGI) is not yet compatible with AWQ, but a PR is open which should bring support soon: TGI PR #781.

Thanks, and how to contribute

Thanks to the chirper.ai team!

Thanks to Clay from gpus.llm-utils.org!

I've had a lot of people ask if they can contribute. I enjoy providing models and helping people, and would love to be able to spend even more time doing it, as well as expanding into new projects like fine tuning/training.

If you're able and willing to contribute it will be most gratefully received and will help me to keep providing more models, and to start work on new AI projects.

Donaters will get priority support on any and all AI/LLM/model questions and requests, access to a private Discord room, plus other benefits.

Special thanks to: Aemon Algiz.

Original model card: Meta's CodeLlama 7B Instruct

Code Llama

Code Llama is a collection of pretrained and fine-tuned generative text models ranging in scale from 7 billion to 34 billion parameters. This is the repository for the 7B instruct-tuned version in the Hugging Face Transformers format. This model is designed for general code synthesis and understanding. Links to other models can be found in the index at the bottom.

Model Use

To use this model, please make sure to install transformers from main until the next version is released:

pip install git+https://github.com/huggingface/transformers.git@main accelerate

Model capabilities:

  • Code completion.
  • Infilling.
  • Instructions / chat.
  • Python specialist.

Model Details

*Note: Use of this model is governed by the Meta license. Meta developed and publicly released the Code Llama family of large language models (LLMs).

Model Developers Meta

Variations Code Llama comes in three model sizes, and three variants:

  • Code Llama: base models designed for general code synthesis and understanding
  • Code Llama - Python: designed specifically for Python
  • Code Llama - Instruct: for instruction following and safer deployment

All variants are available in sizes of 7B, 13B and 34B parameters.

This repository contains the Instruct version of the 7B parameters model.

Input Models input text only.

Output Models generate text only.

Model Architecture Code Llama is an auto-regressive language model that uses an optimized transformer architecture.

Model Dates Code Llama and its variants have been trained between January 2023 and July 2023.

Status This is a static model trained on an offline dataset. Future versions of Code Llama - Instruct will be released as we improve model safety with community feedback.

License A custom commercial license is available at: https://ai.meta.com/resources/models-and-libraries/llama-downloads/

Research Paper More information can be found in the paper "Code Llama: Open Foundation Models for Code" or its arXiv page.

Intended Use

Intended Use Cases Code Llama and its variants is intended for commercial and research use in English and relevant programming languages. The base model Code Llama can be adapted for a variety of code synthesis and understanding tasks, Code Llama - Python is designed specifically to handle the Python programming language, and Code Llama - Instruct is intended to be safer to use for code assistant and generation applications.

Out-of-Scope Uses Use in any manner that violates applicable laws or regulations (including trade compliance laws). Use in languages other than English. Use in any other way that is prohibited by the Acceptable Use Policy and Licensing Agreement for Code Llama and its variants.

Hardware and Software

Training Factors We used custom training libraries. The training and fine-tuning of the released models have been performed Meta’s Research Super Cluster.

Carbon Footprint In aggregate, training all 9 Code Llama models required 400K GPU hours of computation on hardware of type A100-80GB (TDP of 350-400W). Estimated total emissions were 65.3 tCO2eq, 100% of which were offset by Meta’s sustainability program.

Training Data

All experiments reported here and the released models have been trained and fine-tuned using the same data as Llama 2 with different weights (see Section 2 and Table 1 in the research paper for details).

Evaluation Results

See evaluations for the main models and detailed ablations in Section 3 and safety evaluations in Section 4 of the research paper.

Ethical Considerations and Limitations

Code Llama and its variants are a new technology that carries risks with use. Testing conducted to date has been in English, and has not covered, nor could it cover all scenarios. For these reasons, as with all LLMs, Code Llama’s potential outputs cannot be predicted in advance, and the model may in some instances produce inaccurate or objectionable responses to user prompts. Therefore, before deploying any applications of Code Llama, developers should perform safety testing and tuning tailored to their specific applications of the model.
