GeForce GT 540M is a middle-class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi 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.
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF108 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 672MHz.
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.
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies
With a rated board TDP of 35W, it is suited for 15" or larger laptops.
GeForce GT 540M is essentially a fast GeForce GT 435M.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance only slightly below a desktop GeForce GT 430.
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 540M.
Hey.. sorry I'm going to ask a noobish question..
Can I upgrade this gpu from the gpu in my laptop,
Because it feels like a waste to have such a poor graphics card when I have
An i7 with 8gb of ram
is this a decent gpu for games like mw2 and mw3, and need for speed
Bombach007 had this on his laptop, now he's got a pc with a gtx 780! lucky man!
So, i have this vídeo card, the other day i wuz playing remember me on lowest settings, and my pc suddenly turned off. It happened the same with fr cry 3 on lowest settings, and even with toribash. Does anyone know ho to solve this? Thx in advance.
Recently my card has been getting a lot hotter. My fans are clean, and i play most games on low to medium on 1280 x 720 but my temps have risen by 10 to 15 degrees C. My idle temp is still around 45 (b/c ambient temp is kinda high right now, but it has only risen by 3-5 degrees max since winter) but when playing games i used to get 75 - 80 degrees on, i am now getting 90+.
any help? Thanks.
Okay, i'm very very very worried now! All games lag seriously on my RIG. i5 2430M 2.4GHz, 8GB 1333MHz RAM, GT 540M 1GB. Is my card broken? How can i fix this?! I need ideas! I'm freaking out! :(
i remmember this gpu hade 4 star rank!now 5!realy deserve it!nice gpu i think!
GeForce 314.22 Driver RELEASED! :D
Hey Guys! I noticed that my friends Rig runs games better than mine! Even tho I have slightly better Hardware than him. Please check below to see if i'm missing something…
MINE is the ACER and His is the DELL
Acer Aspire 5755G vs Dell Nxxxx (Not sure of the name)
Intel Core i5-2430M 2.4GHz vs Intel Core i5-2410M 2.3GHz
8GB DDR3 1333MHz RAM vs 8GB DDR3 1333MHz RAM
Nvidia GT 540M (1GB) vs Nvidia GT 525M (1GB)
750 5400rpm HDD vs 640 5400rpm HDD
1366x768 vs 1366x768
Is it because i have AVG Installed? What Anti-Virus software do you gamers recomm
