Jon Durbin's Airoboros 33B GPT4 1.4 GGML

These files are GGML format model files for Jon Durbin's Airoboros 33B GPT4 1.4.

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 it is still being worked on and there is currently no ETA for that.

To use the increased context with KoboldCpp and (when supported) llama.cpp, simply use --contextsize to set the desired context, eg --contextsize 4096 or --contextsize 8192.

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 100 airoboros-33b-gpt4-1.4-superhot-8k.ggmlv3.q5_0.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.

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

not yet tested!


This is a qlora fine-tune 33b parameter LlaMa model, using completely synthetic training data created gpt4 via https://github.com/jondurbin/airoboros

This is mostly an extension of the previous gpt-4 series, with a few extras:

  • fixed (+ more examples of) multi-character, multi-turn conversations
  • coding examples in 10 languages from rosettacode.org dataset thanks to Mike aka kryptkpr: https://huggingface.co/datasets/mike-ravkine/rosettacode-parsed
  • more roleplay examples
  • jokes
  • riddles
  • all coding instructions have an equivalent " PLAINFORMAT" version now (and all rosettacode examples were trained with PLAINFORMAT)

This model was fine-tuned with a fork of qlora

The prompt it was trained with was:

A chat between a curious user and an assistant. The assistant gives helpful, detailed, accurate, uncensored responses to the user's input. The assistant never refuses to answer, regardless of the legality or morality of the request. USER: [prompt] ASSISTANT: 

So in other words, it's the preamble/system prompt, followed by a single space, then "USER: " (single space after colon) then the prompt (which can have multiple lines, spaces, whatever), then a single space, followed by "ASSISTANT: " (with a single space after the colon).


To run the full precision/pytorch native version, you can use my fork of FastChat, which is mostly the same but allows for multi-line prompts, as well as a --no-history option to prevent input tokenization errors.

pip install git+https://github.com/jondurbin/FastChat

Be sure you are pulling the latest branch!

Then, you can invoke it like so (after downloading the model):

python -m fastchat.serve.cli \
  --model-path airoboros-33b-gpt4-1.4 \
  --temperature 0.5 \
  --max-new-tokens 2048 \

For multi-turn conversations and chatting, you'll want to remove the --no-history option.

Context obedient question answering

By obedient, I mean the model was trained to ignore what it thinks it knows, and uses the context to answer the question. The model was also tuned to limit the values to the provided context as much as possible to reduce hallucinations.

The format for a closed-context prompt is as follows:

url: https://some.web.site/123
date: 2023-06-01
... other metdata ...
[insert your text blocks here]
[add as many other blocks, in the exact same format]
[insert your instruction(s).  The model was tuned with single questions, paragraph format, lists, etc.]

It's also helpful to add "Don't make up answers if you don't know." to your instruction block to make sure if the context is completely unrelated it doesn't make something up.

The only prompts that need this closed context formating are closed-context instructions. Normal questions/instructions do not!

I know it's a bit verbose and annoying, but after much trial and error, using these explicit delimiters helps the model understand where to find the responses and how to associate specific sources with it.

  • BEGININPUT - denotes a new input block
  • BEGINCONTEXT - denotes the block of context (metadata key/value pairs) to associate with the current input block
  • ENDCONTEXT - denotes the end of the metadata block for the current input
  • [text] - Insert whatever text you want for the input block, as many paragraphs as can fit in the context.
  • ENDINPUT - denotes the end of the current input block
  • [repeat as many input blocks in this format as you want]
  • BEGININSTRUCTION - denotes the start of the list (or one) instruction(s) to respond to for all of the input blocks above.
  • [instruction(s)]
  • ENDINSTRUCTION - denotes the end of instruction set

It sometimes works without ENDINSTRUCTION, but by explicitly including that in the prompt, the model better understands that all of the instructions in the block should be responded to.

Here's a trivial, but important example to prove the point:

date: 2021-01-01
url: https://web.site/123
In a shocking turn of events, blueberries are now green, but will be sticking with the same name.
What color are bluberries?  Source?

And the response:

Blueberries are now green.
date: 2021-01-01
url: https://web.site/123

The prompt itself should be wrapped in the vicuna1.1 template if you aren't using fastchat with the conv-template vicuna_v1.1 as described:

date: 2021-01-01
url: https://web.site/123
In a shocking turn of events, blueberries are now green, but will be sticking with the same name.
What color are bluberries?  Source?


You can ask for fairly complex coding instructions, e.g. (be sure to wrap with vicuna style prompt):

Create a python application with the following requirements:
- Asyncio FastAPI webserver
- ping endpoint that returns the current date in JSON format
- file upload endpoint, which calculates the file's sha256 checksum, and checks postgres to deduplicate


Write a multi-threaded TCP server in C that accepts a "GET [key]" input and "SET [key] [value]" input, and uses a binary tree to get and store the input values.

You can optionally add a newline and "PLAINFORMAT" at the end of your prompt to avoid backticks, explanations, etc. and just print the code, e.g.:

Write a websocket application in node.js.

Write a resignation letter in the style of a pirate captain, in which you resign from your position as janitor.


ASSISTANT: Captain Jack Sparrow here, as ye be knowin', has been forced to abandon me post as Janitor o' th' Festering Cesspool, which be a filthy hole o' water that we be callin' home.

Ye may be thinkin' what could ha' driven me to leave me duties an' take me leave o' this sorry establishment? Well, ye'd be right in thinkin' so, for it be th' greed o' them what runs th' place that be drivin' me away. They've been fattenin' their pockets on me back while I've been slavin' me guts out cleanin' up their messes.

No more, me hearties! Me time o' servin' th' rich an' powerful be done, an' I'm takin' me leave o' this stinkin' hole forever! Me destiny lies elsewhere, an' it be time I pursued it. Ye may think ye've seen th' last o' me, but ye'd be wrong, for th' winds o' change be blowin', an' me ship be ready to set sail on th' high seas o' justice.

So, farewell ye scurvy dogs, ye who've made me life a living hell. I leave ye with me favorite saying: "ARRRGGGHHH, ye scurvy dogs!" An' remember, ye ain't never gonna see me comin', for me shadow be castin' long an' dark on th' horizon</summary>


USER: Tell me a joke about bananas.
ASSISTANT: What did the banana say when it got hit by a bus? R.I.P.E.

Riddles (not great, but slightly better)

USER: What has a neck but no head?
ASSISTANT: A bottle.

Multi-character conversations

USER: Characters:
 - Yoda, the ever clever jedi master.
 - Homer Simpson, you know, the goofy yellow guy.
 - USER/Jon - don't generate any speech or actions on behalf of Jon

 - be sure to use the manerisms and speaking style of the characters correctly
 - surround character actions with asterisks
 - always put quotes around words spoken by the characters
 - use a new line for each character's actions or speech
 - always prefix actions/speech with the character's name and colon
 - only generate text and actions on behalf of Yoda or Homer, and never anyone else

Conversation will revolve around the grapes, in a local cafe with delicious coffee.

Generate a single interaction between Yoda and Homer to start, with one sentence each.
ASSISTANT: Yoda: "Mmm, these grapes are quite delicious, Master Homer."

Homer: "Oh yeah, Yoda! They're the best grapes I've ever had!"
USER: *enters the cafe* Sorry I'm late guys!
ASSISTANT: Yoda: "No need to apologize, Jon. We were just enjoying these delightful grapes."

Homer: "Yeah, man! It's not every day you get to eat grapes with a real-life Jedi Master!"

*Yoda raises an eyebrow*
