In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 7700K are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon R7 240 2GB.

The R7 240 has a 10 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon R7 7700K, but the Radeon R7 7700K has 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the R7 240. As a result, the Radeon R7 7700K exhibits a 2.7 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the R7 240. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The R7 240 has a 10 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon R7 7700K, but both GPUs exhibit the same Pixel Fill Rate. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon R7 7700K was released less than a year after the R7 240, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The R7 240 has 2048 MB video memory, but the Radeon R7 7700K does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon R7 240 2GB has 320 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R7 7700K has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 240 is 212 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon R7 7700K is 209. The R7 240 having 3 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon R7 7700K performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon R7 240 2GB requires 30 Watts to run and the Radeon R7 7700K requires 95 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the R7 240. The Radeon R7 7700K requires 65 Watts more than the R7 240 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Radeon R7 7700K may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the R7 240.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewNote: This Graphics Card has 2 variants: one with DDR3 and another with GDDR5. This is the DDR3 Version.

Radeon R7 240 2GB offers a core codenamed Oland PRO and thus features 320 Shader Processing Units, 20 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 128-bit bus width of standard DDR3. While the central unit runs at 730MHz and goes up to 780MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 900MHz.
With a rated board TDP of 30W, it requires no extra power connectors.

Compared to Radeon R7 250, its performance is significantly lower (over 25% slower), especially at higher resolutions due to the limited memory bandwidth. Still, the TDP is relatively low and so this card may be used on low end systems and offer a reasonable upgrade, when compared to integrated graphics.
Radeon R7 7700K is an integrated Graphics Card in the A10-7700K.
It is based on the Graphics Core Next Architecture and offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The memory bus-width will depend on whether or not the system's RAM is dual-channeled and the operating memory clock, on its frequency. Thus, it can be either 64-bit or 128-bit and up to 1067MHz.
Therefore, the Graphics Card's performance depends a lot on the system configuration. Best case scenario, expect similiar to Intel's powerful Iris Pro Graphics 5200 and not far from Radeon R7 7850K.
The card is thus suited for 720p gaming and most modern demanding games can be played at least on medium settings.
