NVIDIA GeForce GT 740: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GT 740

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GT 740 sales 29 May 2014 at a recommended price of $89 . This is Kepler architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5.01 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 80.19 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 145 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 64 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 8.02 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
