You can do the reverse unit conversion from gibibyte to kilobyte, or enter any two units below:
kilobyte to nybble
kilobyte to megabit
kilobyte to gigabyte
kilobyte to gigabit
kilobyte to kibibyte
kilobyte to gibibit
kilobyte to exabyte
kilobyte to megabyte
kilobyte to petabyte
kilobyte to mebibit
The SI prefix "kilo" represents a factor of 103, or in exponential notation, 1E3.
So 1 kilobyte = 103 bytes.
The definition of a byte is as follows:
A byte is the basic unit of measurement of information storage in computer science. In many computer architectures it is a unit of memory addressing, consisting of 8 bits.
Since computer memory comes in base two rather than 10, a large portion of the software and computer industry use binary estimates of the SI-prefixed quantities, while producers of computer storage devices prefer the SI values. This is why a computer hard drive advertised with a "100 GB" decimal storage capacity actually contains no more than 93 GB of 8-bit (power of 2) addressable storage.
The gibibyte (a contraction of giga binary byte) is a unit of digital information storage. It is equal to 1,024 mebibytes.
