In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 240 Sapphire 1GB Edition are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 9200.

The GeForce 9200 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The R7 240 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 9200, and so the R7 240 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 9200 when running the latest games.

The R7 240 has 1024 MB video memory, but the GeForce 9200 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The R7 240 has 320 Shader Processing Units but the GeForce 9200 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The R7 240 transistor size technology is 52 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9200. This means that the R7 240 is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9200.

The Radeon R7 240 Sapphire 1GB Edition requires 35 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 9200. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the R7 240.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R7 240 Sapphire 1GB Edition is a special edition of the middle-class Radeon R7 240 2GB.
This edition is essentially a reference card with no overclock out of the box and thus there is no performance boost over the standard edition. Also, the smaller frame buffer (1GB against 2GB) will not reduce its performance, as the 2GB itself is a gimmick.
It had previously been thought that NVIDIA had decided to drop the G and NV nomenclature for a D (for Desktop) nomenclature on their processors. Following the D is the generation number and the target market indicator. NVIDIA's official designations for target markets include Mainstream, Performance, and Enthusiast. For example, the D9E indicates a 9th generation Desktop GeForce video card for the Enthusiast market[1]. However, NVIDIA has actually forked their codenames into those of graphics processors, and those of graphics cards. The GPU cores have kept the prefix 'G' and future versions will include the prefix 'GT'; whereas the actual cards are now codenamed as D, generation number and target market.
