GB is a GigaByte. Gb is a GigaBit. Those are very different units. (1GB = 8Gb) Some technical circles I've worked in may use an uppercase "G" or a lowercase "g" to differentiate between the decimal (10^9 bits or bytes) and binary (2^30 bits or bytes) definitions but that's splitting hairs and rarely used because it can easily get confusing.
