NVIDIA GeForce GT 240: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GT 240

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GT 240 sales 17 November 2009 at a recommended price of $80. This is Tesla 2.0 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 1-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 3.37 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Mobile.
