How well can the GeForce GT 720M run games
28 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GT 720M is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

How many years will the GeForce GT 720M graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GT 720M in your PC? This GeForce GT 720M graphics card has reached the end of its ability to run games released today. If you have it in your gaming PC then it’s time to upgrade your graphics solution.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GT 720M? A suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GT 720M is the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile, which is 1558% more powerful and can run 982 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements. Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 932% better and can meet 588 of their recommended requirements.

GeForce GT 720M Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GT 720M is a entry-level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Fermi Architecture.


Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm Technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF117-N14M-GE which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is initially clocked at 625MHz and may reach up to 938MHz, in Turbo Mode.
Additionally, GF117 is built using a 28nm technology.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.


Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 33W, it is suited for average sized laptops.


Performance
GeForce GT 720M is essentially a fast GeForce GT 620M with the option for the Boost Clock which depends on the laptop's cooler.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is slightly below the older GeForce GT 635M.


System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 720M.
