Gigs, short for gigabytes are:
gig·a·byte (gĭg'ə-bīt', jĭg'-) Pronunciation Key
A unit of computer or electronic memory or data storage capacity equal to 1,024 megabytes (230 bytes).
One billion bytes.
but the actual amount of storage, due to the computer operating in base 2, is always an
exponent of 2 I.e. 2,4,8,16,32,64,128,256,512,1024...so a 20 gig hard drive actually
is 1001100010010110100000000 in base two, and works out to slightly more.
this is why your DRAM sticck are 256meg, 512meg, and the so-called "1gig" is
1024 2 to the exponent 10) remember a computer works like a light switch
something is either "ON" or "OFF" so only ones and zeros are used a zero is off and a one is on.
uhh are u referring 2 gigabytes or uhh like shows that bands play
I'm guessing gigabytes, because it was in the Computers and Technology section.
Good answer Broadway.
