# Is one terabyte larger than one gigabyte

Is one terabyte larger than one gigabyte?

One terabyte is greater than one gigabyte. According to the binary system, there are 1024 gigabytes in a terabyte. On the other hand, one terabyte is equal to 1000 gigabytes in the decimal system. Also, 1 terabyte consists of 1,099,511,627,776 bytes, that also means 10244 bytes in the binary system. And 1 gigabyte is equal to 1,073,741,824 bytes which means 10243 bytes in the binary system.

Is a megabyte larger than a gigabyte?

Megabytes (MB) and gigabytes (GB) are mostly used to measure computer storage and memory or size of a movie. A gigabyte is 1000 times bigger than a megabyte in the decimal system. And one gigabyte is equivalent to 1024 megabytes in the binary system which computers use. While a gigabyte consists of 1,073,741,824 bytes, a megabyte consists of 1,048,576 bytes in the binary system. And a gigabyte is equal to 1,048,576 kilobytes. On the other hand, a megabyte is equal to 1024 kilobytes in the binary system.

So, a megabyte is not larger than a gigabyte. On the contrary, a gigabyte is larger than a megabyte. You can check our Megabytes Conversion page to learn more.

What's the difference between a megabyte and a gigabyte?

A megabyte is a unit of digital information with prefix mega which is a million, and a gigabyte is a unit of digital information with prefix giga which is a billion. So, a gigabyte is a thousand times more than a megabyte. While there are 8,000,000 bits or 8,000 kilobits in a megabyte, there are 8,000,000 kbits in one gigabyte. So the difference between a megabyte and a gigabyte is how many bites or bits they consist of.

How many bytes are in one gigabyte?

Units of digital information are bits, bytes, kilobytes, megabytes, gigabytes, etc. One gigabyte is equivalent to 1,000,000,000 bytes in base 10 and 1,073,741,824 bytes in base 2 which computers use. A byte is a basic unit of memory size and one byte consists of 8 binary digits (bits). Also, one gigabyte is equal to 1,024 MB or 1,048,576 KB in a computer system. Let’s see:

1 KB = 1024 bytes

1 MB = 1024 kilobytes

1 GB = 1024 megabytes

So, when we multiply these (1024x1024x1024), we can get 1,073,741,824 bytes in binary system. If you want to learn more, you can visit our Gigabytes Conversion page.
