How well can the GeForce GT 540M run games
2 Aug 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GT 540M is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

How many years will the GeForce GT 540M graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GT 540M in your PC? Its upgrade time for the GeForce GT 540M, assuming you are a modern day gamer.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GT 540M? A good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GT 540M would be the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q which meets 850 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 1449% better performance.

GeForce GT 540M Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GT 540M is a middle-class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first 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 GF108 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 672MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. 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 35W, it is suited for 15" or larger laptops.


Performance
GeForce GT 540M is essentially a fast GeForce GT 435M.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance only slightly below a desktop GeForce GT 430.


System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 540M.
