How well can the GeForce GT 740 v2 run games
31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This GeForce GT 740 v2 graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

How many years will the GeForce GT 740 v2 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GT 740 v2 in your PC? Its upgrade time for the GeForce GT 740 v2, assuming you are a modern day gamer.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GT 740 v2? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB which is 534% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 900 games from the most demanding games today. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which has 374% better performance and can run 691 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.

GeForce GT 740 v2 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GT 740 v2 is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.


Architecture
The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GK107-425-A2 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 993MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1250MHz.


Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 64W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.


Performance
GeForce GT 740 v2 is essentially a slower GeForce GTX 650.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is not too far from the older GeForce GTX 650.


System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 740 v2.
