Young Geng's Koala 13B GPTQ

These files are GPTQ model files for Young Geng's Koala 13B.

Multiple GPTQ parameter permutations are provided; see Provided Files below for details of the options provided, their parameters, and the software used to create them.

These models were quantised using hardware kindly provided by Latitude.sh.

Provided files

Multiple quantisation parameters are provided, to allow you to choose the best one for your hardware and requirements.

Each separate quant is in a different branch. See below for instructions on fetching from different branches.

Branch Bits Group Size Act Order (desc_act) File Size ExLlama Compatible? Made With Description
main 4 128 False 7.45 GB True GPTQ-for-LLaMa Most compatible option. Good inference speed in AutoGPTQ and GPTQ-for-LLaMa. Lower inference quality than other options.
gptq-4bit-32g-actorder_True 4 32 True 8.00 GB True AutoGPTQ 4-bit, with Act Order and group size. 32g gives highest possible inference quality, with maximum VRAM usage. Poor AutoGPTQ CUDA speed.
gptq-4bit-64g-actorder_True 4 64 True 7.51 GB True AutoGPTQ 4-bit, with Act Order and group size. 64g uses less VRAM than 32g, but with slightly lower accuracy. Poor AutoGPTQ CUDA speed.
gptq-4bit-128g-actorder_True 4 128 True 7.26 GB True AutoGPTQ 4-bit, with Act Order and group size. 128g uses even less VRAM, but with slightly lower accuracy. Poor AutoGPTQ CUDA speed.
gptq-8bit--1g-actorder_True 8 None True 13.36 GB False AutoGPTQ 8-bit, with Act Order. No group size, to lower VRAM requirements and to improve AutoGPTQ speed.
gptq-8bit-128g-actorder_False 8 128 False 13.65 GB False AutoGPTQ 8-bit, with group size 128g for higher inference quality and without Act Order to improve AutoGPTQ speed.
gptq-8bit-128g-actorder_True 8 128 True 13.65 GB False AutoGPTQ 8-bit, with group size 128g for higher inference quality and with Act Order for even higher accuracy. Poor AutoGPTQ CUDA speed.
gptq-8bit-64g-actorder_True 8 64 True 13.95 GB False AutoGPTQ 8-bit, with group size 64g and Act Order for maximum inference quality. Poor AutoGPTQ CUDA speed.

How to download from branches

  • In text-generation-webui, you can add :branch to the end of the download name, eg TheBloke/koala-13B-GPTQ:gptq-4bit-32g-actorder_True
  • With Git, you can clone a branch with:
git clone --branch gptq-4bit-32g-actorder_True https://huggingface.co/TheBloke/koala-13B-GPTQ`
  • In Python Transformers code, the branch is the revision parameter; see below.

How to easily download and use this model in text-generation-webui.

Please make sure you're using the latest version of text-generation-webui.

It is strongly recommended to use the text-generation-webui one-click-installers unless you know how to make a manual install.

  1. Click the Model tab.
  2. Under Download custom model or LoRA, enter TheBloke/koala-13B-GPTQ.
  • To download from a specific branch, enter for example TheBloke/koala-13B-GPTQ:gptq-4bit-32g-actorder_True
  • see Provided Files above for the list of branches for each option.
  1. Click Download.
  2. The model will start downloading. Once it's finished it will say "Done"
  3. In the top left, click the refresh icon next to Model.
  4. In the Model dropdown, choose the model you just downloaded: koala-13B-GPTQ
  5. The model will automatically load, and is now ready for use!
  6. If you want any custom settings, set them and then click Save settings for this model followed by Reload the Model in the top right.
  • Note that you do not need to set GPTQ parameters any more. These are set automatically from the file quantize_config.json.
  1. Once you're ready, click the Text Generation tab and enter a prompt to get started!

How to use this GPTQ model from Python code

First make sure you have AutoGPTQ installed:

GITHUB_ACTIONS=true pip install auto-gptq

Then try the following example code:

from transformers import AutoTokenizer, pipeline, logging
from auto_gptq import AutoGPTQForCausalLM, BaseQuantizeConfig

model_name_or_path = "TheBloke/koala-13B-GPTQ"
model_basename = "koala-13b-GPTQ-4bit-128g.no-act.order"

use_triton = False

tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained(model_name_or_path, use_fast=True)

model = AutoGPTQForCausalLM.from_quantized(model_name_or_path,

To download from a specific branch, use the revision parameter, as in this example:

model = AutoGPTQForCausalLM.from_quantized(model_name_or_path,

prompt = "Tell me about AI"
prompt_template=f'''BEGINNING OF CONVERSATION:
USER: {prompt}

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

input_ids = tokenizer(prompt_template, return_tensors='pt').input_ids.cuda()
output = model.generate(inputs=input_ids, temperature=0.7, max_new_tokens=512)

# Inference can also be done using transformers' pipeline

# Prevent printing spurious transformers error when using pipeline with AutoGPTQ

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



The files provided will work with AutoGPTQ (CUDA and Triton modes), GPTQ-for-LLaMa (only CUDA has been tested), and Occ4m's GPTQ-for-LLaMa fork.

ExLlama works with Llama models in 4-bit. Please see the Provided Files table above for per-file compatibility.

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: Aemon Algiz.
