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

Gigabit (Gbit) to Gibibyte (GiB) Conversion Image

The Gbit to GiB Calculator Tool provides a convenient solution for effortlessly converting data units from Gigabit (Gbit) to Gibibyte (GiB). 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 (Gigabit) and target (Gibibyte) data units.

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

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

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

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


Gibibytes = Gigabits x 10003 ÷ (8x10243)


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


Gibibytes = Gigabits x 1000000000 ÷ 8589934592


Gibibytes = Gigabits x 0.116415321826934814453125


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

  1. = 1 x 10003 ÷ (8x10243)
  2. = 1 x (1000x1000x1000) ÷ (8x1024x1024x1024)
  3. = 1 x 1000000000 ÷ 8589934592
  4. = 1 x 0.116415321826934814453125
  5. = 0.116415321826934814453125
  6. i.e. 1 Gbit is equal to 0.116415321826934814453125 GiB.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

Unit Definitions

What is Gigabit ?

A Gigabit (Gb or Gbit) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000,000 bits and it is commonly used to express data transfer speeds, such as the speed of an internet connection and to measure the size of a file. In the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of gibibit (Gibit) is used instead.

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.
