In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 240 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 630.

The GeForce GT 630 has a 260 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GT 240, but the GeForce GT 240 has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 630. As a result, the GeForce GT 240 exhibits a 4.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce GT 630. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce GT 630 has a 260 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GT 240, but the GeForce GT 240 has 4 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GT 630. As a result, the GeForce GT 240 exhibits a 1.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce GT 630. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce GT 630 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GT 240, and so the GeForce GT 630 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 630 and the GeForce GT 240 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce GT 240 has 25.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 630, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GT 240 is slightly better than the GeForce GT 630.

Both the GeForce GT 630 and the GeForce GT 240 have 96 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the . Knowing that the shader performance of the GeForce GT 630 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GeForce GT 630 requires 65 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 240 requires 69 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 630 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 240. The GeForce GT 240 requires 4 Watts more than the GeForce GT 630 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce GT 240 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce GT 630.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 630 is Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GF108-400-A1 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 810MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 65W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
GeForce GT 630 is essentially a fast GeForce GT 530.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above the older GeForce GT 530.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 630.
Overview
GeForce GT 240 is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Tesla Architecture.

Architecture
Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT215-450-A2 which has 8 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 550MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 850MHz.

Features
DirectX 10.1 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 69W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above a Radeon HD 4670, meaning it is much faster than the more recent Fermi GeForce GT 430.
