GeForce GT 240 Review

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.

as far you have GT 210 that means you have PCI x16 slot, i think you should have only one slot, so you can easyly go for this card, just watch out if it fits your case but i dont think that could be a problem too…
with your CPU and motherboard GT 240 and 3 Gb of ram would an optimal dicision, otherwise your rig will bottleneck, you could go also FOR GT 430 if you havenot good PSU ^_^

To the members saying GT 430 is better:
You can't directly compare this GPU to GeForce GT 430. The shaders are from different architecture, GT 240 features twice as much TMUs, ROPs and the shaders are clocked more than twice as fast as the central unit - something that happened on the first-shader-unified architecture.
However, GT 430 supports DirectX 11 and this one doesn't.

Modest gaming, yes. But this GPU does not support DirectX 11 and so many games aren't playable..

I don't see big differences to the gt 525M. Why is the 525 still 21% worse?

I think there is a mistake on the site, because the 430 2GB should be a lot better than this.

well, u should see the second number of any GPU, because that's the indicator, GT 240's 2nd number is 4, and 430 is 3, that means 240 is better, even if the 430 has got 2Gb, it doesn't matter :)

Well it isn't really the best indicator because my GPU, Geforce GT 630 has a performance similar to that of GT 540. Sometimes the name is not the thing to go by, when looking at GPUs. Especially Nvidia ones.
