NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M: specs and benchmarks



NVIDIA started GeForce GT 240M sales 15 June 2009. This is a GT2xx architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of DDR3, GDDR2, GDDR3 memory clocked at Up to 600 (DDR2), Up to 1066 (DDR3), Up to 800 (GDDR3) MHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 25.6 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Power consumption is at 23 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.52% of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.

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.

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3DMark Vantage is an outdated DirectX 10 benchmark using 1280x1024 screen resolution.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.
