said by TSI Gabe:Technically G/M/K is base 1000. Base 1024 uses (ie: is SUPPOSED to use) Gi/Mi/Ki prefixes (ie: GiB/Gib/etc). As you note, the i-less prefix is often used even when the base 1024 numbers are intended. Can you supply a reference that speeds are supposed to be base 1000 not base 1024? said by blackzero:
1 GB = 1'024MB = 1'048'576KB
Actually you have it wrong here, no offense intended. It's a common misconception that bandwidth should be multiplied by 1024. Only memory should be calculated that way, not bandwidth.
1GB = 1000MB = 1,000,000KB
