AMD Radeon R7 240

The Radeon R7 240 is a GPU from AMD. This chip has a bad gaming score at 1% in our GPU benchmark.

The Radeon R7 240 has 2 GiB of DDR3 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 70 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 128 bits. 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 R7 240 GPU core runs at a frequency of 730 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 780 MHz. A clock speed is the frequency at which the GPU updates. A higher speed means more processing can happen per cycle. This is useful only when comparing cards of the same generation, as other architectures may process more or less per clock.

As for rendering API support, the Radeon R7 240 supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.4 features are supported. Newer APIs are usually more efficient, allowing for better performance in games and better graphical effects.

This chip has a Thermal Design Power of 30W: the total amount of waste heat generated. A card that runs hotter will need better cooling and will draw more power from the wall.
