A Megabyte (MB) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000 bytes (or 8,000,000 bits) and commonly used to express the size of a file or the amount of memory used by a program. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of mebibyte (MiB) is used instead.
Where as a Gibibyte (GiB) is a binary unit of digital information that is equal to 1,073,741,824 bytes (or 8,589,934,592 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix 'gibi' is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based 'gigabyte' (GB). It is widely used in the field of computing as it more accurately represents the amount of data storage and data transfer in computer systems.
