We recommend the following models to start:

  • Kunoichi 7B: A memory-efficient model that excels at a wide range of tasks. Kunoichi is a great starting point for most users.
  • Mythomax-Kimiko 13B: A medium-sized, highly-capable model. Recommended for users with at least 16gb of RAM.
  • Psyonic-Cetacean 20B: A powerful model that is great for complex roleplay scenarios. Recommended for users with a GPU.

Note that each of these models (and most others available on Backyard AI) are unfiltered. Please use your discretion when evaluating their outputs.
