How well can the GeForce GT 740M v2 run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GT 740M v2 is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements. DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

How many years will the GeForce GT 740M v2 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GT 740M v2 in your PC? You should definitely consider replacing this GeForce GT 740M v2 graphics card, if it is still in your gaming PC.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GT 740M v2? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile which is 936% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 982 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GT 740M v2 then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB as this is better than 606 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 545% better performance as well.

GeForce GT 740M v2 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GT 740M v2 is a Middle-Class Mobile 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-GT-740M which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is initially clocked at 810MHz and goes up to 895MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-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 SLI, Kepler Boost, Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 45W, it is suited for average sized laptops.


Performance
GeForce GT 740M v2 is essentially a fast GeForce GT 650M.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its Performance is around 4% better than the older GeForce GT 650M.


System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 740M v2.
