Technical Details

Llama 3 was trained on over 15T tokens from a massively diverse range of subjects and languages, and includes 4 times more code than Llama 2.

This model also features Grouped Attention Query (GQA) so that memory usage scales nicely over large contexts.

Instruction fine tuning was performed with a combination of supervised fine-tuning (SFT), rejection sampling, proximal policy optimization (PPO), and direct policy optimization (DPO).
