Radeon R7 240 v2 Sapphire 1GB Edition compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Radeon R7 240 v2 Sapphire 1GB Edition 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. This graphics card is now over 6 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. The level of driver support currently available is excellent, so manufacturer updates will undoubtedly accommodate new games with specific optimizations and allow for a long lifespan as part of a new gaming PC build.

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 v2 Sapphire 1GB Edition 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 212, the AMD Radeon R7 240 v2 Sapphire 1GB Edition processes shading and special graphical effects a mediocre rate. The GPU is not too power-hungry at 30 Watts, however.
