# 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 1024^{4} bytes in the binary system. And 1 gigabyte is equal to 1,073,741,824 bytes which means 1024^{3} bytes in the binary system.

So, 1 TB is bigger than 1 GB. If you want to learn more about how to calculate terabytes to gigabytes, you can visit our page.

**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. Letâ€™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.
