GeForce GT 240 Review
GeForce GT 240 is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Tesla Architecture.
Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.
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.
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.
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.
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.
With a rated board TDP of 69W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power meaning no extra connectors are required.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above a Radeon HD 4670, meaning it is much faster than the more recent Fermi GeForce GT 430.
