Radeon R5 M240 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon R5 M240 2GB is an Entry-Level Mobile Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the GCN architecture.


Architecture
Radeon R5 M240 2GB Features a GPU Codenamed Jet XT which is a Second Gen Graphics Core Next (GCN) GPU and is identical to the Sun GPU Previously used on the Mobility Radeon HD 8500M Series.
It has 5 Stream Multiprocessors activated and offers 320 Shader Processing Units, 20 TMUs and 8 ROPs.


GPU
The central unit runs at 1000MHz and goes up to 1030MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with DDR3 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 64-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1000MHz.


Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 2GB.


Power Consumption
The Rated board TDP of Radeon R5 M240 2GB is not known but it should be adequate for small to average sized notebooks.


Performance
Radeon R5 M240 2GB is only a tad bit faster than Radeon R5 M230 and thus can offer Performance Similar to NVIDIA's GeForce GT 540M.
Therefore, Radeon R5 M240 2GB doesn't offer very good performance and can only beat Today's Integrated Graphics by a small margin.


System Suggestions
Radeon R5 M240 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Middle-Class Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.

I have updated this Graphics Card guys. It was never officially announced by AMD.
It's just a tad bit faster than Radeon R5 M230 but not too far from Radeon R7 M240.
Honestly, it's barely any faster than today's Integrated Graphics Cards. It's not really worth to spend extra cash on a laptop with this. It only excels over Intel's Graphics on games with proper Driver Support.

WOOT support added!
Only took AMD 5 months!


Why would they call it a R5 m240 if it's just a underclocked R5 m230 (given that the R5 m255 is higher)?


Also to note: the "Omega Drivers" wern't signed for this thing. Been having to F8 boot for the last few weeks.

You sure that's true? It miss-reads on most laptops.For instance, mine, with fully updated driver/BIOS ECT, reads out as-
Core Clock: 1030 MHz
Memory Clock: 900 Mhz
Core Count: 384
Bus Width: 32-bit
Mem Bandwidth: 7.2 GB/s
Mem Type: GDDR3
Then mem size varries between zero MB a 2.4 PetaBytes of VRAM.


So yeah… none of it is accurate. It has 1Gb of 64-bit DDR3 and 320 cores for starters.

It's really weird. I got rid of most of the miss-reading issues by reinstalling windows in UEFI mode to give it more direct access to the hardware read outs.


From what I've read. It's entirely a BIOS issue and that some manufactures have issued fixes in their latest Bios updates, but mine is a ACER.. so it's never getting fixed XD
