In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI are massively better than the AMD Radeon R7 240 Asus 1GB Edition.

The RTX 2080 Ti has a 620 MHz higher core clock speed and 252 more Texture Mapping Units than the R7 240. This results in the RTX 2080 Ti providing 352.6 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 RTX 2080 Ti has a 620 MHz higher core clock speed and 80 more Render Output Units than the R7 240. This results in the RTX 2080 Ti providing 113 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 RTX 2080 Ti was released over three years more recently than the R7 240, and so the RTX 2080 Ti is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the R7 240 when running the latest games.

The RTX 2080 Ti has 10240 MB more video memory than the R7 240, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RTX 2080 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The RTX 2080 Ti has 590.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R7 240, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2080 Ti is massively better than the R7 240.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI has 4352 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R7 240 Asus 1GB Edition has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 2080 Ti is 7116 and the actual shader performance of the R7 240 is 212. The RTX 2080 Ti having 6904 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RTX 2080 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R7 240.

The RTX 2080 Ti transistor size technology is 16 nm (nanometers) smaller than the R7 240. This means that the RTX 2080 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the R7 240.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI requires 260 Watts to run and the Radeon R7 240 Asus 1GB Edition requires 30 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the RTX 2080 Ti and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the R7 240. The RTX 2080 Ti requires 230 Watts more than the R7 240 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RTX 2080 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the R7 240.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is the top RTX 20 Series graphics card and considered an Enthusiast graphics card based on the Turing architecture. Architecture The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. GPU It equips a GPU Codenamed TU102 which has 4352 Shader Processing Units, 272 TMUs and 88 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1350MHz and goes up to 1545MHz in Boost mode. It also has 544 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. Memory The GPU accesses an 11GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 352-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 285W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with two 8-pin power connectors. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a top-End Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.Overview
Radeon R7 240 Asus 1GB Edition is a special edition of AMD's Middle-Class Radeon R7 240 2GB, created by Asus.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit runs at the same speed.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock now operates at 800MHz and the Frame Buffer was halved to 1GB.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System now features a Dust-proof Fan design which increases particle resistance and extends card lifespan by up to 25% longer than reference.

Without Overclocking Out of The Box, Radeon R7 240 Asus 1GB Edition is as fast as the reference Radeon R7 240 2GB.
