NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GT 240M sales 15 June 2009. This is Tesla 2.0 architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of DDR3, GDDR2, GDDR3 memory clocked at 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 0.98 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Mobile.
