GeForce GT 740 v3 MSI 2GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GT 740 v3 MSI 2GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Middle-Class GeForce GT 740 v3, created by MSI.


Overclock: Central Unit
None.


Overclock: Memory Clock
None.


Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 2GB. This would prove useful under most circumstances because most modern 3D Games require at least 2GB of Memory to run Optimally.
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 Larger Frame Buffer is mostly a Gimmick.


Cooling Solution
Untouched.


Performance
Benchmarks indicate no performance over the reference GeForce GT 740 v3.
