It says 32b bytes is 32GB

They are colluding with HDD manufacturers and using base 1000 instead of 1024 to jew you out of your gigabytes.

> the screenshot shows that it distinguishes between decimal and binary prefixes (Tb, Ti)

>> No.66396945

This. RAM companies are still honest.

>> No.66396949

Yes. This is the definition. giga = 10^9.

>> No.66396961

Why, when you enter input in BYTES and convert to to gigaBYTES, does it show teraBITS and tebiBITS

>> No.66396962

Not OP but why didn't they do it for gigabois aswell?

>> No.66396995

He has to select gibibytes instead of gigabytes.

Decimal is used for numbers outside of computing.

It's actually correct, retard.

>> No.66397120

I believe the point he is trying to make is that Windows displays Gibibytes as Gigabytes.
But I could be wrong.

>> No.66397132

So, it says that 32*10^9 bytes is actually 32 Gigabytes. What's wrong? 10^9 is literally the definition of Giga.

Probably hardware reserved. What's your task manager show? I've got 63.8 MB of hardware reserved memory on my 8 GB so it shows 7.9 GB for me. I can't imagine why 300 MB would be reserved though unless you've got a pre-D3D11 graphics card or you've got an iGPU.

>> No.66397645

Operating Systems use GebiBytes GiB.
Disk Manufacturers and Carriers use GigaBytes GB.

RAM Producers use GebiBytes GiB.

>> No.66397663

Your integrated GPU might be taking a 256mb of RAM.
