Convert Bits and Bytes

Bytes KiB MiB GiB TiB  
Bytes KB MB GB TB  

Computer storage disks and RAM are manufactured in binary units (power of 2) Bytes, KiB, MiB …
The binary prefix convention allows common numbers such as 2048 bytes to display as round numbers, so 2 KiB

Power of 10 numbers are also calculated above (KB, MB…) these are used by Apple and some hard drive manufacturers.

Many documents still refer to byte measues with the old-style prefixes: KB,MB,GB…
These are case sensitive and easily confused with bits: Kb,Mb,Gb…
  1 Byte = 8 bits

Bytes are used to measure disc/file sizes.
bits are used to measure network or download speeds.

Typical throughputs:
Hard disc = 30 MiB per second. (x8 = 240 Mb/Sec)
Gigabit Ethernet = 125 MiB per second. (x8 = 1,000 Mb/Sec)
Solid state disc = 250 MiB per second. (x8 = 2,000 Mb/Sec)
Fibre Channel = 2,550 MiB per second. (x8 = 20,400 Mb/Sec)

Convert Hex to Decimal

Type any hex or decimal number:
