AMD Radeon R7 240
AMD started Radeon R7 240 sales 8 October 2013 at a recommended price of $69. This is GCN 1.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4.6 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 73.6 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x8 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 168 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 30 Watt.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at
percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.

- 3DMark Fire Strike Graphics
Fire Strike is a DirectX 11 benchmark for gaming PCs. It features two separate tests displaying a fight between a humanoid and a fiery creature seemingly made of lava. Using 1920x1080 resolution, Fire Strike shows off some realistic enough graphics and is quite taxing on hardware.
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.
