NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 vs AMD Radeon RX 5900 XT
Comparison of graphics card architecture, market segment, value for money and other general parameters.
General performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU core base clock and boost clock speeds, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider their benchmark and gaming test results. Note that power consumption of some graphics cards can well exceed their nominal TDP, especially when overclocked.
Compatibility, dimensions and requirements
Information on compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility).
Parameters of memory installed: its type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. Note that GPUs integrated into processors have no dedicated VRAM and use a shared part of system RAM.
Video outputs and ports
Types and number of video connectors present on the reviewed GPUs. As a rule, data in this section is precise only for desktop reference ones (so-called Founders Edition for NVIDIA chips). OEM manufacturers may change the number and type of output ports, while for notebook cards availability of certain video outputs ports depends on the laptop model rather than on the card itself.
APIs supported, including particular versions of those APIs.

Competitors of Radeon RX 5900 XT from NVIDIA
Here are some closest NVIDIA rivals to Radeon RX 5900 XT:
Advantages of NVIDIA GeForce GT 240
Lower power consumption (69W vs 300W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.
CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture - an API for video card computing power usage in tasks different from 3D graphics processing. Can be used for physics simulation for instance)
PhysX (hardware acceleration of physical simulation engine named PhysX)
Advantages of AMD Radeon RX 5900 XT
Cheaper ($391 vs $743)
Wider memory bus (384 vs 128 bit)
More pipelines (4352 vs 96)
Higher memory bandwidth (672 vs 54.4 GB/s)
Finer manufacturing process technology (7 vs 40 nm)
So, which one is the better GPU?
Technical City couldn't decide between NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 and AMD Radeon RX 5900 XT. We've got no test results to judge.
