Conclusion:

The ASUS ENGT240 was able to perform quite well against the other cards that are currently out on the market, such as beating out the HD4670 in just about every single benchmark that we ran it against. The Inno3D GT240 and the ASUS ENGT240 were both quite close to each other during the entire benchmarking tests - the only difference between the two cards was that the Inno3D was able to overclock a little bit better than the ASUS card was able to, which was quite disappointing. The cooling solution that was on the ASUS ENGT240 did its job quite well - the highest that I saw the card get was 64°C during all the testing, which is not very high for a video card operating at 630MHz on the GPU and running through all these benchmarks back-to-back. I do like the fact that the ENGT240 does get all the power that it needs from the motherboard's PCI-E slot - there are no extra power adapters that need to be plugged into the video card. It was great to see that GDDR5 memory was installed on the ENGT240, however it would have been nice to see an extra 512MB of it installed to give you a total of 1GB. Doing so might have been enough to give the card a little more power in the benchmarks to get closer to its competition. The ability for PhysX and CUDA processing on the GT240 makes it quite valuable for anyone who is not going to be using the card for gaming - many applications will use the CUDA cores to lower the rendering times. All in all, if you are looking for a new graphics card on a budget and you are not looking for the newest graphics processors, you may just want to add the ENGT240 to your list. I would suggest this card for the casual gamer and anyone who is building either an HTPC or a computer for video/image editing.

 

Pros:

  • Performance
  • Cooling
  • Power Connector
  • PhysX and CUDA
  • GDDR5 Memory

 

Cons:

  • Overclocking
