Convert Kilobytes to Gigabytes, Gigabytes to Kilobytes - Digital Storage Conversion (Binary)

Use these online calculators to convert between Kilobytes (KB) and Gigabytes (GB). These Digital Storage conversion calculators provide a quick and easy way to convert:

  • Kilobytes to Gigabytes (KB to GB)
  • Gigabytes to Kilobytes (GB to KB)

Digital Storage conversions are based on "Binary multiples of the units" used as standard industry practice by RAM and ROM manufacturers where:

  • 1,024 bits = 1 Kilobit
  • 128 Bytes = 1 Kilobit
  • 8,192 bits = 1 Kilobyte
  • 1,024 Bytes = 1 Kilobyte
