Radeon R5 240 v1 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon R5 240 v1 is an OEM Only, Middle-Class Graphics Card, based on the Second Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.


Architecture
Radeon R5 240 v1 equips the GPU Codenamed Oland XT which is a GCN 1.1 GPU and has 6 Compute Units activated, offering 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs.


GPU
The Central Unit is Clocked at 825MHz.


Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with GDDR3 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 64-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1000MHz.


Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 30W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power, meaning no extra connectors are required.


Performance
Radeon R5 240 v1 is very similar in terms of core configuration to Radeon R7 240 but suffers from a huge memory bottleneck resultant from the 64-bit bus width, against the 128-bit bus width of Radeon R7 240.
As a resultant, it's only suited for 720p gaming and even then it still offers considerably less performance than Radeon R7 240.


System Suggestions
Radeon R5 240 v1 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We Recommend a Middle-Class Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
