Testing:

Testing the Inno3D GT 240 is not a challenge, so much as trying to find out what kind of gaming performance this card is capable of delivering. The computing attributes make it a card that will help improve the everyday experience of a computer for the mainstream user. To test out the GT 240 gaming credentials, I will run the card through the OverclockersClub suite of benchmarks, but you know it won't be able to deliver playable frame rates at the settings I use, so I will reduce the settings to a level that gives an expectation of playability. In reality, this card will most likely find its home in a mainstream computer with a 17" to 19" LCD panel in a home office or in the family computer. Testing will be limited from 1280x1024 up to 1920x1200, with the revised settings listed at the top of each game page. 1280x1024 should be playable in all of the games in the suite, so let's get to it and see if we can make it playable. Of course, overclocking will be part of the exercise. The drivers used for this test will be Catalyst 9.10 for all ATI cards and 191.07 for the nVidia cards.

When it came down to overclocking the Inno3D GeForce GT240, I was quite surprised as to how high I was able to get the clock speeds in comparison to the stock speeds. I was able to see a 24% increase on the GPU and 34% on the memory. It was not too painfully hard to overclock the card either, but it does require some time and patience, unlike overclocking an ATI card when it can be as simple as clicking a button and walking away and letting it overclock itself. With the GT240, it needed to be overclocked somewhat like a processor and raise the MHz of your Core and Memory (at separate times) by 10 and test, and continue the process until it was unstable in the benchmarking.
