Model overview

The mlx-community/Meta-Llama-3-8B-Instruct-4bit model is a quantized version of the meta-llama/Meta-Llama-3-8B-Instruct model. The original model was developed and released by Meta as part of the Llama 3 family of large language models (LLMs). Llama 3 models are optimized for dialogue use cases and outperform many open-source chat models on common industry benchmarks. The Llama 3 models use supervised fine-tuning (SFT) and reinforcement learning with human feedback (RLHF) to align the models with human preferences for helpfulness and safety.

The 8B parameter size version of the Llama 3 model is well-suited for applications that require a smaller, faster model. It maintains strong performance across a variety of tasks while being more efficient than the larger 70B parameter version. The mlx-community/Meta-Llama-3-8B-Instruct-4bit model further optimizes the 8B model by quantizing it to 4-bit precision, reducing the model size and inference time while preserving much of the original model's capabilities.
