Gb

A Gb is a unit symbol for the Gigabyte. A gigabyte is made up of multiple-unit bytes, which stores the digital information and denotes the size of data. A byte is a size, which is made up of 8 bits. A bit is a single unit of data. It can be '0' or '1'. And, the short form of Gigabyte is 'Gbyte'.

In the word gigabyte, Giga denotes the ninth power of 10, which means 109. In computer science and IT, the GB unit equals to 10243 or 230 bytes. 1 Gigabyte is equivalent to the following values:

  • 230 bytes,
  • 1,000,000,000 bytes (B),
  • 1,000 megabytes (MB).

A gigabyte is that unit, which is larger than a megabyte and smaller than the unit terabyte. This unit is used for measuring the storage capacity. A solid-state drive may hold the capacity of 256 GB, and the hard drive may store the capacity of 750 GB.

The Random-Access Memory (RAM) is also measured in Gigabytes like 1GB RAM, 2GB RAM, or 4GB RAM.
