Testing:

Testing the ASUS GT 240 is done following a strict guideline that I adhere to - the video card is benchmarked and the results are tallied up on pages six to fifteen. For the game tests, Far Cry 2, Crysis Warhead, Darkest of Days, Call of Duty: World at War, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Resident Evil 5, Left 4 Dead, and the benchmarks 3DMark 06 and 3DMark Vantage. Since the GT 240 isn't very powerful, it is tested with lower game/benchmark settings and compared to other graphics cards at the same settings that perform and cost somewhat similarly. After all that testing, I will repeat the testing after overclocking the card to a higher, but stable speed.

Overclocked settings:

  • ASUS GT 240 650/1850/1745

I am amazed by how far the ASUS GT 240 was willing to overclock! All testing was completely stable at the speeds 650 MHz core, 1745 MHz Shader, and 1850 MHz memory, equating to approximate gains of 18%, 30%, and 9% respectively. I managed to hit the wall for MSI Afterburner and other overclocking software for shader speed, while the core and memory were at their own inherent speed limitations. At stock idle, the GPU core was running at low to mid 20's °C and load overclocked somewhere in the mid to high 40's °C depending on the test.
