NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GT 740M sales 1 April 2013. This is Kepler architecture notebook card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 2 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 28.83 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Power consumption is at 45 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.62 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA TITAN RTX.
