LmSys' Vicuna 33B 1.3 (final) GGML

These files are GGML format model files for LmSys' Vicuna 33B 1.3 (final).

These are SuperHOT GGMLs with an increased context length. SuperHOT is a new system that employs RoPE to expand context beyond what was originally possible for a model. It was discovered and developed by kaiokendev.

In order to use the increased context length, you can presently use:

Support is also expected to come to llama.cpp, however work is still being done to find the optimal implementation.

To use the increased context with KoboldCpp, simply use --contextsize to set the desired context, eg --contextsize 4096 or --contextsize 8192.

NOTE: Increased context length is an area seeing rapid developments and improvements. It is quite possible that these models may be superseded by new developments in the coming days. If that's the case, I will remove them, or update this README as appropriate.

Repositories available


These GGMLs will work with any llama.cpp-compatible GGML client that supports k-quants.

However the increased context length won't work without specific support. See the note in the introduction for details on using increased context.

Explanation of the new k-quant methods

The new methods available are:

  • GGML_TYPE_Q2_K - "type-1" 2-bit quantization in super-blocks containing 16 blocks, each block having 16 weight. Block scales and mins are quantized with 4 bits. This ends up effectively using 2.5625 bits per weight (bpw)
  • GGML_TYPE_Q3_K - "type-0" 3-bit quantization in super-blocks containing 16 blocks, each block having 16 weights. Scales are quantized with 6 bits. This end up using 3.4375 bpw.
  • GGML_TYPE_Q4_K - "type-1" 4-bit quantization in super-blocks containing 8 blocks, each block having 32 weights. Scales and mins are quantized with 6 bits. This ends up using 4.5 bpw.
  • GGML_TYPE_Q5_K - "type-1" 5-bit quantization. Same super-block structure as GGML_TYPE_Q4_K resulting in 5.5 bpw
  • GGML_TYPE_Q6_K - "type-0" 6-bit quantization. Super-blocks with 16 blocks, each block having 16 weights. Scales are quantized with 8 bits. This ends up using 6.5625 bpw
  • GGML_TYPE_Q8_K - "type-0" 8-bit quantization. Only used for quantizing intermediate results. The difference to the existing Q8_0 is that the block size is 256. All 2-6 bit dot products are implemented for this quantization type.

Note: the above RAM figures assume no GPU offloading. If layers are offloaded to the GPU, this will reduce RAM usage and use VRAM instead.

How to run in koboldcpp

On Linux I use the following command line to launch the KoboldCpp UI with OpenCL aceleration and a context size of 4096:

python ./koboldcpp.py --stream --unbantokens --threads 8 --usecublas --gpulayers 100 vicuna-33b-1.3-superhot-8k.ggmlv3.q4_K_M.bin

Change --gpulayers 100 to the number of layers you want/are able to offload to the GPU. Remove it if you don't have GPU acceleration.

For OpenCL acceleration, change --usecublas to --useclblast 0 0. You may need to change the second 0 to 1 if you have both an iGPU and a discrete GPU.

Thanks, and how to contribute.

Thanks to the chirper.ai team!

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: Luke from CarbonQuill, Aemon Algiz, Dmitriy Samsonov.

SuperHOT Prototype 2 w/ 8K Context

This is a second prototype of SuperHOT, this time 30B with 8K context and no RLHF, using the same technique described in the github blog. Tests have shown that the model does indeed leverage the extended context at 8K.

You will need to use either the monkeypatch or, if you are already using the monkeypatch, change the scaling factor to 0.25 and the maximum sequence length to 8192
