GB = Gigabyte (1,073,741,824 bytes) is conversion of GB to Byte on binary base (i.e.1024 to the power of 3). However, Im not sure if you may calculate this way a size of usable space on Intel SSD. For example I've have 1 TB Intel 760 series SSD installed in my computer. In Intel Specification Data the capacity is defined as 1.024TB. This is the total physical capacity of this drive. The total usable capacity of this drive is only 952.62GB, since part of the capacity is used for NAND flash management and for the maintenance purposes.
