Are prefixes used in HWiNFO for Bytes decimal, or binary like in Windows, where instead of e.g. GiB they still use GB, and 1 GB is equal to 1024 MiB)?

By looking at Physical Memory Available versus what's shown in Task Manager's Available, I can tell that it's decimal prefixes used for binary.
But is it consistent for every data sensor? I just wanted to rename and rescale them, so pretty much why I'm asking.

All values shown in HWiNFO as "MB", "GB" are multiples of 1024.
The only exception is disk size which is shown in both variants.
