In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 240 2GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 720.

The GeForce GT 720 has a 67 MHz higher core clock speed than the R7 240, but the R7 240 has 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 720. As a result, the R7 240 exhibits a 1.8 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce GT 720. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce GT 720 has a 67 MHz higher core clock speed than the R7 240 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce GT 720 providing 0.6 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce GT 720 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 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce GT 720, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the R7 240 also has superior memory performance overall.

The R7 240 has 14.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 720, which means that the memory performance of the R7 240 is slightly better than the GeForce GT 720.

The Radeon R7 240 2GB has 320 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 720 has 192. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 240 is 212 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 720 is 153. The R7 240 having 59 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R7 240 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GT 720.

The Radeon R7 240 2GB requires 30 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 720 requires 19 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the R7 240 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 720. The R7 240 requires 11 Watts more than the GeForce GT 720 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the R7 240 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce GT 720.

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.
Overview
GeForce GT 720 is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Kepler Architecture.

Architecture
This Graphics Card Equips the Kepler GK208 GPU which is essentially a power optimized version of the GK107 GPU. Whereas it still has a count of 2 Stream Multiprocessors, the bus-width has been cut in half to allow for even a smaller power consumption and consequently a cooler operating temperature.
Additionally, the GK208 GPU allows the Central Unit to reach a significant higher frequency, thanks to the Kepler Boost 2.0 Technology. The better the laptop's cooling system, the higher the frequency.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GK208 which has 1 Stream Multiprocessor activated and thus offers 192 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 797MHz.

Memory
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.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 19W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance on average with the older GeForce GT 530.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Processor (Pentium G) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 720.
