In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 240 v2 HIS iCooler Boost Clock 2GB Edition are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon R7 240 2GB.

The R7 240 and the R7 240 have both the same core clock speed and the same Texture Fill Rate. 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 and the R7 240 have both the same core clock speed and 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 R7 240 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 Radeon R7 240 v2 HIS iCooler Boost Clock 2GB Edition and the Radeon R7 240 2GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The R7 240 has 44.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R7 240, which means that the memory performance of the R7 240 is noticeably better than the R7 240.

Both the Radeon R7 240 v2 HIS iCooler Boost Clock 2GB Edition and the Radeon R7 240 2GB have 320 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, overall, the R7 240 has noticeably better performance.

The Radeon R7 240 v2 HIS iCooler Boost Clock 2GB Edition requires 30 Watts to run and the Radeon R7 240 2GB requires 30 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 R7 240. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R7 240 v2 HIS iCooler Boost Clock 2GB Edition is a special edition of AMD's Middle-Class Radeon R7 240 v2, created by HIS.

Overclock: Central Unit
None.

Overclock: Memory Clock
None.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 2GB. However, because the GPU itself is too weak to work under other circumstances in which 2GB of Memory are needed - such as 1080p Gaming, a Large Frame Buffer is mostly a Gimmick.

Cooling Solution
The card is equipped with iCooler, making it extremely quiet and noise level is less than 28dB.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate no Performance Boost over the Reference Radeon R7 240 v2.
Note: 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.
