Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GT 240 sales 17 November 2009 at a recommended price of $80. This is GT2xx architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 512 MB or 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 0 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 54.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 6.6" (168mm) (16.8 cm). No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 69 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at

1.84%

of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.

  • Passmark
  • 3DMark Vantage Performance

Passmark

This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.

Benchmark coverage: 26%

3DMark Vantage Performance

3DMark Vantage is an outdated DirectX 10 benchmark using 1280x1024 screen resolution. It taxes the graphics card with two scenes, one depicting a girl escaping some militarized base located within a sea cave, the other displaying a space fleet attack on a defenseless planet. It was discontinued in April 2017, and Time Spy benchmark is now recommended to be used instead.
