Radeon R7 240 4GB DDR3 compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Radeon R7 240 4GB DDR3 has average performance. This should be expected only from older dedicated graphics cards, so this graphics card should definitely be avoided if building a system to power modern applications and games. The graphics card is under a year old , meaning it should be based on recent technologies and manufacturer support should almost certainly still be available.

At this performance level you would be better off getting a CPU with an integrated GPU, because a dedicated graphics card like the AMD Radeon R7 240 4GB DDR3 would not be worth the extra investment, and an integrated solution would be much cheaper, produce less heat, and require less power. We would recommend an Intel Iris GPU on one of the latest Intel Haswell processors, such as the Iris Pro Graphics 5200 Desktop, or one of AMD's latest APU Family graphics solutions such as the Radeon HD 8670D.

With an effective SPU count of 288, the AMD Radeon R7 240 4GB DDR3 processes shading and special graphical effects a mediocre rate. The GPU is not too power-hungry at 30 Watts, however. With a memory bandwidth of 28.8 GB/sec, this graphics card is substandard when processing detailed textures in modern applications and games.
