Gibibyte (GiB) to Gigabit (Gbit) Conversion - Formula & Steps

Gibibyte (GiB) to Gigabit (Gbit) Conversion Image

The GiB to Gbit Calculator Tool provides a convenient solution for effortlessly converting data units from Gibibyte (GiB) to Gigabit (Gbit). Let's delve into a thorough analysis of the formula and steps involved.

Outlined below is a comprehensive overview of the key attributes associated with both the source (Gibibyte) and target (Gigabit) data units.

Source Data Unit Target Data Unit
Equal to 1024^3 bytes
(Binary Unit)
Equal to 1000^3 bits
(Decimal Unit)

The formula for converting the Gibibyte (GiB) to Gigabit (Gbit) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA Gbit = GiB x (8x10243) ÷ 10003

Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Gibibyte (GiB) to Gigabit (Gbit). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.


Gigabits = Gibibytes x (8x10243) ÷ 10003


Gigabits = Gibibytes x (8x1024x1024x1024) ÷ (1000x1000x1000)


Gigabits = Gibibytes x 8589934592 ÷ 1000000000


Gigabits = Gibibytes x 8.589934592


Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Gibibyte (GiB) to Gigabit (Gbit) can be processed as outlined below.

  1. = 1 x (8x10243) ÷ 10003
  2. = 1 x (8x1024x1024x1024) ÷ (1000x1000x1000)
  3. = 1 x 8589934592 ÷ 1000000000
  4. = 1 x 8.589934592
  5. = 8.589934592
  6. i.e. 1 GiB is equal to 8.589934592 Gbit.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

You can employ the formula and steps mentioned above to convert Gibibytes to Gigabits using any of the programming language such as Java, Python, or Powershell.

Unit Definitions

What is Gibibyte ?

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.
