AMD Radeon R5 240

The Radeon R5 240 is a GPU from AMD. This chip has a bad gaming score at 2% in our GPU benchmark.

The Radeon R5 240 has 2 GiB of memory. More memory is beneficial when gaming at high resolutions as the memory needs to store the frame buffer and all the game textures. If you run out of memory, you will experience poor performance as the GPU needs to swap data in and out of the memory as it is used.

In terms of clock speed, the Radeon R5 240 GPU core runs at a frequency of 730 MHz. The clock runs at a speed called the clock speed. It dictates the number of updates per second that the GPU can process. Overclocking a chip, which means increasing the clock speed will improve the performance. However, thermals and power efficiency may be diminished.

As for rendering API support, the Radeon R5 240 supports up to DirectX 11.2. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.4 features are supported. Higher level APIs such as DirectX 12 give more control to the game developer and can allow them to improve the graphics and performance.

Power and thermals for the AMD Radeon R5 240 are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 50 watts. This measures the amount of heat the GPU produces when running at 100%. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's a good estimate.
