How well can the GeForce GT 740M run games
The GeForce GT 740M is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

This low performing GPU is unable to play any of the most demanding games available today.

How many years will the GeForce GT 740M graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GT 740M in your PC? You should definitely consider replacing this GeForce GT 740M graphics card, if it is still in your gaming PC.

GeForce GT 740M Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GT 740M is a Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.


Architecture
The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GK107-GT-740M which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 810MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.


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


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 45W, it is suited for average sized laptops.


Performance
GeForce GT 740M is essentially a fast GeForce GT 640M.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its Performance is around 3% worse than the older GeForce GT 650M.


System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 740M.

At this time I have a GT740M but I want to upgrade it. What's a 'cheap' option? I have a Lenovo Thinkpad E540 (i5-4200M 2,5GhZ - 8GB RAM).

I actually got +250 MHz on the memory (1150 MHz total). It runs stable but I didn't bother with the core clock, as the main bottleneck should be the DDR3 memory.

My computer comes with the 740M with 4GB dedicated, does it change much the performance or it's just like the 2GB version ?
