This is a bit confusting. From https://www.lne.fr/en/news/general-conference-weights-and-measures-2022:
to express quantities of digital information using orders of magnitude in excess of 1024, has been adopted.
Thus, four new prefixes have been introduced:
ronna pour 1027
ronto pour 10-27
quetta pour 1030
quecto pour 10-30
End quote.
Abbreviations?
What does the reference to 1024 mean? Does it mean power of ten prefixes (negative powers)? The what relevance has 1024? If it's binary units, negative powers are nonsense.

I'm wondering when these prefixes will turn up in https://physics.nist.gov/cuu/Units/prefixes.html.You can find them here:
