Byte Calculator

This online calculator allows you to calculate the associated byte value of computer components and equipment to provide accurate comparison of byte capability.

A Byte is equal to 8 Bits (Binary Digits)

Multiples of Bytes can be shown in two ways, as a decimal (base 10) or binary (base 2)

The Calculator below shows both interpretations.

Decimal values are expressed as 1000 to the power as indicated by the name, e.g. 1 megabyte = 1000^2

Binary values are expressed by the binary multiple as approved by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) in December 1988

Calculations can be saved to a table by clicking the "Add to table" button

(The table appears the first time the button is clicked)
