A gibibyte (a contraction of giga binary byte) is a unit of information or computer storage, abbreviated GiBcite web|url=http://physics.nist.gov/cuu/Units/binary.html|title=Prefixes for binary multiples|date=2007|publisher=NIST|accessdaymonth=10 August|accessyear=2007] .

: 1 gibibyte = 230 bytes = 1,073,741,824 bytes = 1024 mebibytes

The gibibyte is closely related to the gigabyte, which can either be a synonym for gibibyte, or refer to 109 bytes = 1,000,000,000 bytes, depending on context (see binary prefix).
