In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 240 XFX Low Profile 2GB Edition are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 5570 1024MB.

The R7 240 has a 80 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the HD 5570. This results in the R7 240 providing 1.6 GTexel/s better texturing performance. 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 80 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 5570 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the R7 240 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 R7 240 was released over three years more recently than the HD 5570, and so the R7 240 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 5570 when running the latest games.

The R7 240 has 1024 MB more video memory than the HD 5570, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the HD 5570 has superior memory performance.

The HD 5570 has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R7 240, which means that the memory performance of the HD 5570 is marginally better than the R7 240.

The Radeon R7 240 XFX Low Profile 2GB Edition has 320 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 5570 1024MB has 400. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 240 is 212 and the actual shader performance of the HD 5570 is 169. The R7 240 having 43 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R7 240 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 5570.

The R7 240 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 5570. This means that the R7 240 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 5570.

The Radeon R7 240 XFX Low Profile 2GB Edition requires 35 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 5570 1024MB requires 42 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the R7 240 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 5570. The HD 5570 requires 7 Watts more than the R7 240 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD 5570 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the R7 240.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R7 240 XFX Low Profile 2GB Edition is a special edition of the middle-class Radeon R7 240 2GB.
This edition is essentially a reference card with no overclock out of the box and thus there is no performance boost over the standard edition.
The Evergreen series is a family of GPUs developed by AMD graphics products division. The existence was spotted on a presentation slide from AMD Technology Analyst Day July 2007 as 'R8xx'. ATI held a press event in the USS Hornet museum on September 10, 2009 and announced ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology and specifications of the Radeon HD 5800 series' variants. The first variants of the Radeon HD 5800 series were launched September 23, 2009, with the HD 5700 series launching October 12 and HD 5970 launching on November 18 The HD 5670, was launched on January 14, 2010, and the HD 5500 and 5400 series were launched in February of 2010, completing what has appeared to be most of ATI's Evergreen GPU lineup.
Demand so greatly outweighed supply that more than two months after launch, many online retailers were still having trouble keeping the 5800 and 5900 series in stock.
