Provided files and GPTQ parameters

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.

All recent GPTQ files are made with AutoGPTQ, and all files in non-main branches are made with AutoGPTQ. Files in the main branch which were uploaded before August 2023 were made with GPTQ-for-LLaMa.

Explanation of GPTQ parameters
  • Bits: The bit size of the quantised model.
  • GS: GPTQ group size. Higher numbers use less VRAM, but have lower quantisation accuracy. "None" is the lowest possible value.
  • Act Order: True or False. Also known as desc_act. True results in better quantisation accuracy. Some GPTQ clients have had issues with models that use Act Order plus Group Size, but this is generally resolved now.
  • Damp %: A GPTQ parameter that affects how samples are processed for quantisation. 0.01 is default, but 0.1 results in slightly better accuracy.
  • GPTQ dataset: The dataset used for quantisation. Using a dataset more appropriate to the model's training can improve quantisation accuracy. Note that the GPTQ dataset is not the same as the dataset used to train the model - please refer to the original model repo for details of the training dataset(s).
  • Sequence Length: The length of the dataset sequences used for quantisation. Ideally this is the same as the model sequence length. For some very long sequence models (16+K), a lower sequence length may have to be used. Note that a lower sequence length does not limit the sequence length of the quantised model. It only impacts the quantisation accuracy on longer inference sequences.
  • ExLlama Compatibility: Whether this file can be loaded with ExLlama, which currently only supports Llama models in 4-bit.
Branch Bits GS Act Order Damp % GPTQ Dataset Seq Len Size ExLlama Desc

How to use this GPTQ model from Python code

Install the necessary packages

Requires: Transformers 4.32.0 or later, Optimum 1.12.0 or later, and AutoGPTQ 0.4.2 or later.

pip3 install transformers>=4.32.0 optimum>=1.12.0
pip3 install auto-gptq --extra-index-url https://huggingface.github.io/autogptq-index/whl/cu118/  # Use cu117 if on CUDA 11.7

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

pip3 uninstall -y auto-gptq
git clone https://github.com/PanQiWei/AutoGPTQ
cd AutoGPTQ
pip3 install .

For CodeLlama models only: you must use Transformers 4.33.0 or later.

If 4.33.0 is not yet released when you read this, you will need to install Transformers from source:

pip3 uninstall -y transformers
pip3 install git+https://github.com/huggingface/transformers.git

You can then use the following code

from transformers import AutoModelForCausalLM, AutoTokenizer, pipeline

model_name_or_path = "TheBloke/manticore-13b-chat-pyg-GPTQ"
# To use a different branch, change revision
# For example: revision="main"
model = AutoModelForCausalLM.from_pretrained(model_name_or_path,

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

prompt = "Tell me about AI"

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

input_ids = tokenizer(prompt_template, return_tensors='pt').input_ids.cuda()
output = model.generate(inputs=input_ids, temperature=0.7, do_sample=True, top_p=0.95, top_k=40, max_new_tokens=512)

# Inference can also be done using transformers' pipeline

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



The files provided are tested to work with AutoGPTQ, both via Transformers and using AutoGPTQ directly. They should also work with Occ4m's GPTQ-for-LLaMa fork.

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

Huggingface Text Generation Inference (TGI) is compatible with all GPTQ models.

Manticore 13B Chat

Built with Axolotl

Manticore 13B Chat builds on Manticore with new datasets, including a de-duped subset of the Pygmalion dataset. It also removes all Alpaca style prompts using ### in favor of chat only style prompts using USER:,ASSISTANT: as well as pygmalion/metharme prompting using <|system|>, <|user|> and <|model|> tokens.

Questions, comments, feedback, looking to donate, or want to help? Reach out on our Discord or email wing@openaccessaicollective.org

Training Datasets

Manticore 13B Chat is a Llama 13B model fine-tuned on the following datasets along with the datasets from the original Manticore 13B.

Manticore 13B Chat was trained on 25% of the datasets below. The datasets were merged, shuffled, and then sharded into 4 parts.

Manticore 13B

Not added from Manticore 13B:

  • mmlu - mmlu datasets were not added to this model as the test split is used for benchmarks


Special thanks to Nanobit for helping with Axolotl, TheBloke for quantizing these models are more accessible to all, ehartford for cleaned datasets, and 0x000011b for the RP dataset.


Try out the model in HF Spaces. The demo uses a quantized GGML version of the model to quickly return predictions on smaller GPUs (and even CPUs). Quantized GGML may have some minimal loss of model quality.

Release Notes


Manticore was built with Axolotl on 8xA100 80GB

  • 3 epochs taking approximately 8 hours. No further epochs will be released.
  • The configuration to duplicate this build is provided in this repo's /config folder.

Bias, Risks, and Limitations

Manticore has not been aligned to human preferences with techniques like RLHF or deployed with in-the-loop filtering of responses like ChatGPT, so the model can produce problematic outputs (especially when prompted to do so). Manticore was fine-tuned from the base model LlaMa 13B, please refer to its model card's Limitations Section for relevant information.


USER: make up a sonnet in the style of shakespeare about a skier skiing in the glades on a bluebird day.
ASSISTANT: A skier doth glide 'neath sun’s glow, His edges sharp to cut the snow, Bluebird sky above, While he doth revel on the slopes below, The cold air biting his nose, But not his spirits, For he is filled with a sense of joy, As he carves through the powdery drifts. His body moves in graceful rhythm, And each turn he makes with ease, He feels like he could ski forever, With no care for the world outside these glades.
USER: tell me a joke about alpacas
ASSISTANT: Did you hear about the famous alpaca ballet dancer? She was a prima llama.
USER: okay, that is actually pretty good
ASSISTANT: What do you call an alpaca in a bowtie? A llama-cholla!
USER: why is that funny?
ASSISTANT: Because it’s a play on words. “Llama-cholla” sounds like “lame chola,” which is Spanish slang for someone who acts cool or pretentious. So, the joke is implying that alpacas are vain and act cool with their bowties.
USER: What is 44 + 77?
USER: What is the sum of 33 and 77?
USER: tell me 5 words that start with “ex” and the sum of 33 and 77.
ASSISTANT: exotic, expressive, explicit, experimental, and extravagant. The sum of 33 and 77 is 110.
USER: tell me 3 words that start with “egr” and end in “s”
ASSISTANT: egret, eggplant, and egrets.
  • oof
USER: Sally has 3 brothers. Each brother has 2 sisters. How many sisters does Sally have?
ASSISTANT: Sally has a total of 6 siblings, so she has a total of 6 - 2 = 4 sisters.
USER: Sally has 3 brothers. Each brother has 2 sisters. How many sisters does Sally have? Use multi-step reasoning to explain your answer.
ASSISTANT: Sally has a total of three brothers, so she has a total of three * 2 = six siblings. Her family consists of three boys and six girls in total. This means that Sally has three sisters since there are six female relatives and only three male ones.
USER: But when brothers have sisters, aren’t they shared or the same?
ASSISTANT: No, not every sibling shares their mother. For example, I have two brothers who share one mother but my third brother has a different mother from both of them.
USER: Let’s assume they all share the same mother and father. Now explain with multi-step reasoning.
ASSISTANT: If Sally has three brothers then that means she has six siblings altogether. Each brother has two sisters, which means that there are twelve female relatives in her family - one for each of her brothers and herself. Since there are only six females in the entire family, that means that Sally’s mother has no other children than her own three sons - so she can’t be the mother of any of the sisters. So all those sisters have to belong to one of the brothers, and since they are shared by two brothers, then each brother has a single sister. Therefore, there is only one sister for Sally, making the final answer 1.
  • pretty sure that reasoning isn't correct, and the final answer of having 1 sister is a lucky guess
