Gaming Performance Comparison

In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the R7 240 and the R7 240 are equal.

The R7 240 and the R7 240 have both the same core clock speed and the same Texture Fill Rate. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The R7 240 and the R7 240 have both the same core clock speed and the same Pixel Fill Rate. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the Radeon R7 240 4GB DRR3 and the Radeon R7 240 4GB DRR3 were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

The Radeon R7 240 4GB DRR3 and the Radeon R7 240 4GB DRR3 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the Radeon R7 240 4GB DRR3 and the Radeon R7 240 4GB DRR3 are the same, which means the R7 240 and the R7 240 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the Radeon R7 240 4GB DRR3 and the Radeon R7 240 4GB DRR3 have 320 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the two GPUs have extremely similar stats, so any gaming performance difference would most likely be negligible.

The Radeon R7 240 4GB DRR3 requires 30 Watts to run and the Radeon R7 240 4GB DRR3 requires 30 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the R7 240 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the R7 240. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R7 240 4GB DDR3 is a middle-class graphics card based on the GCN architecture.
It packs a core codenamed Oland PRO and offers 320 Shader Processing Units, 20 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 128-bit bus width of standard DDR3. While the central unit runs at 730MHz and goes up to 780MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 900MHz.
Its performance is somewhat comparable to DDR3 variant of Radeon HD 7750, though the latter will perform better at DirectX 11 games.
Compared to Radeon R7 250, its performance is significantly lower, especially at higher resolutions due to the limited memory bandwidth.
Still, the TDP is relatively low and so this card may be used on low end systems and offer a reasonable upgrade, when compared to integrated graphics.
Please note that are also GDDR5 variants which are significantly faster and that this DDR3 version should come in 2GB and 4GB versions, though both will offer the same performance.
