I saw some people arguing over how large a gigabyte is. Its 1024, not 1000. The reason for that is that computers use binary numbers (as you may know, 0's and 1's) however, most people use decimal, or base 10 numbers. To us humans increments like 10, 100, 1000 make more sense. Basically 10 to the Nth power. To computers, its the same thing but with 2. So numbers like 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512 and 1024 just make a whole lot more sense. It's simpler to keep track of 1024 in binary because it looks like 10000000000 rather than the number 1000 which looks like 1111101000.

There more you know.

TL;DR 1024 comes from 2^10
#217 to #193 - John Cena (08/18/2012) [-]
I'm sorry, but do you work with computers? Your knowledge is cool, but I actually am a programmer. First of all, "keeping simple track of the number" is a bad description as to why powers of two are used.
Seconds, 1 GB = 1000 MB, why won't you people get it. What's wrong with you? Do you know how to get information? You have to have a reliable source, not something you remember from your distant childhood. Because, guess what! Before 1998, there was no term for the 1024 multiple and everyone did use the term "giga". But they were wrong. No reliable source = false information.
http://physics.nist.gov/cuu/Units/binary.html
Using the term "kilo" for 1024 is nothing more than a kind of programming slang and it's wrong.
At lot of people say "ur" instead of "your", that doesn't make it right even in the slightest bit.

1. Yes, I am a programmer. A REAL programmer. I was trying to explain it in terms that weren't that technical. I didn't want to get into the discrete math of it.

2. A gigaBYTE is 1024 megabytes. A gigaBIT is 1000 bytes. There is a difference.

Again, you think you know the answer, and you're wrong.

I'm so glad you made this mistake, and I will now prove to you that you are wrong.

One gibibyte is in fact not 1024 megabyte (which is what mb stands for) but it is 1024 mibibytes (which is abbreviated as MiB).

Now if you had instead said.

"One gigabyte is 1000 mb because of the prefix giga, which is in accordance with the SI units 1000."

You would have been correct until I had proven you wrong.

Now you simply say 1 gibibyte is 1024 mb, and you're wrong, so I respond by providing evidence that what you say is untrue.

There is not a single field in human communications where it is not important to prove what you say.

GB and gB are different things. The prefixes used for cs are not SI units. If you think they are, you are a ******* moron.

Fair enough, you provided a link that proves you're right. Well, read this "]http://physics.nist.gov/cuu/Units/binary.html"
What do you thrust most? The IEC or searchstorage? Remember that the ones who wrote those definitions you gave are still people and they can be wrong much like you and I can be.

" The term "megabyte" is commonly used to mean either 1000^2 bytes or 1024^2 bytes. As 1024 (2^10) approximates 1000 (10^3), roughly corresponding SI multiples began to be used for binary multiples.

On hard drives these days we get so many gigabytes and terabytes of data that we just say 1GB = 1000 MB, when the more correct thing to say is 1 GB = 1024 MB.

So one can use either one but most people think of 1GB = 1000 MB, except computer engineers and such. But 1GB = 1024MB is the correct answer.

Thanking you kind sir
User avatar #94 to #68 - kafudamapla (08/17/2012) [-]
It's simple. Giga means 10^9 therefore 1GB = 1000MB. However do to bytes being binary, the closest possible value is 1024MB
User avatar #71 to #68 - cantremember (08/17/2012) [-]
If you doubt my answer, calculate the binary numbers and you'll see that it CAN'T be exactly 1000, but 1024 :).
User avatar #74 to #68 - hillaryisacunt (08/17/2012) [-]
Except , it's the total opposite .

Most common people people think of GB as 1024 MB while most Computer Scientists ( at least CS students for sure , me being one ) know that 1 GB = 1000MB and 1 GiB = 1024 MiB .
#73 to #68 - John Cena (08/17/2012) [-]
**** off, noob! That was debated an hour ago. If you go to wikipedia following that exact ****** quote in the beginning of your comment you'll find: "By the end of 2007, standards and government authorities including IEC, IEEE, EU, and NIST proposed standards for binary prefixes and requiring the use of megabyte to strictly** denote 1000^2 bytes and mebibyte to denote 1024^2 bytes**. The term remains ambiguous and it can follow any one of the following common definitions:"
The point is: there are still people who use "mega" for 1024 but they're all ******* WRONG.
Or do you also believe that because people write "u" instead of "you", that means "u" is also correct?

>Bit = 0's and 1's
>Byte = 8 bits
>Kilobyte = 1024 bytes
>Megabyte = 1024 bytes
>Gigabyte = 1024 bytes

It's math, binary is a base 2 number system, meaning that there is only two numbers in it, it is a completely different system then the base 10 number system we are all used to(0-9), those in the government who "propose" probably do not understand binary and assume that binary directly translates to the base 10 system, in binary the prefixes are for the power based off of the basic byte, following 8(basic byte), 1024(kilobyte), 1024(megabyte) etc, the proposed standards are made for the base 10 system and would not be accurate to describe the base 2 system, this means that the ones who are proposing the standard are the ones who are wrong.
Or do you think that someone who speaks only french should weigh in on English grammar?

1 GB = 1000 MB
1 GiB = 1024 MiB

I get the feeling a lot of this confusion could have been avoided if Microsoft had done their homework .

Actually it's
1GB=1012MB
Just sayin
User avatar #47 to #42 - fedegon (08/17/2012) [-]
"Giga" means literally "A thousand times", so it's 1000 MB.
I believe they put the extra there depending on how extra they need for extra stuff or stuff that's extra.
User avatar #53 to #47 - SuitUp (08/17/2012) [-]
Except it makes no sense whatsoever to try and force the scientific prefix interpretation over standard, common usage.

1GB is 1024MB for binary purposes (Powers of 2). The Giga prefix is used because it is the closest one that is meaningful and the margin of error is tiny.

User avatar #62 to #54 - hillaryisacunt (08/17/2012) [-]
Do you understand , how little sense that would make ? By your silly logic

1 GB = 1024 MB , 1 MB = 1024 KB , 1 KB = 1024 B
1 GiB= 1024 MiB, 1 Mib= 1024 KiB, 1 Kib = 1024 ??? A Bibibyte ??

see, what i dont understand, is what's the point of the little i?

User avatar #92 to #89 - hillaryisacunt (08/17/2012) [-]
1 Gigabyte = 1000 Megabyte ( as in kilo , mega , giga in the metric system i.e base 10)
1 Gibibyte = 1024 Mibibyte ( binary system )

Oh Jesus Christ, so many people arguing over something that google can answer so quickly.

Here's what google, wikipedia and every single website on google agrees on.

One gigabyte in common context is 1000 mb.

But what's the confusion? If it was this simple, surely there would be no arguing.

But no, there's another thing. In computer science this would be an inaccurate description of measurement because we have to keep how a computer works in mind, so because of binary, they use another measurement called gibibytes.

These gibibytes are, instead of being measured according to the SI units, measured in what makes it more easy to understand for the people working with computers.

They do this in general physics as well. In order to make a subject easier for the people dealing with it, they will make up new units to make calculations easier.
