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 GPTQ files are made with AutoGPTQ.

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 issues with models that use Act Order plus Group Size.
  • 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.

How to use this GPTQ model from Python code

First make sure you have AutoGPTQ 0.3.1 or later installed:

pip3 install auto-gptq

If you have problems installing AutoGPTQ, please build from source instead:

pip3 uninstall -y auto-gptq
git clone
cd AutoGPTQ
pip3 install .

Then try the following example code:

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

model_name_or_path = "TheBloke/stablecode-completion-alpha-3b-4k-GPTQ"

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:
# Note that `revision` requires AutoGPTQ 0.3.1 or later!

model = AutoGPTQForCausalLM.from_quantized(model_name_or_path,

prompt = "Tell me about AI"
prompt_template=f'''Just enter code to complete:

import torch import torch.nn as nn


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 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.

model = AutoModelForCausalLM.from_pretrained(
inputs = tokenizer("import torch\nimport torch.nn as nn", return_tensors="pt").to("cuda")
tokens = model.generate(
print(tokenizer.decode(tokens[0], skip_special_tokens=True))
