I made a mistake! I hate to admit it, but with the HD 5970 launching so close to the new GT 240 my focus was on the new high-end model from ATI. While in the process of making sure I had a pair of them, I found myself doing a bit of a "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah" to a few companies that wanted to send the GT 240.
It's not that we don't like low-end cards here, it's just that we tend to look at one or two at launch time and then not worry about them much thereon. To be frank, most people don't find them very interesting.
What my "Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs" ultimately resulted in was having a grand total of six GT 240s in my possession. While we made sure one review was ready for the NDA lift, it didn't really solve the issue of covering the remaining five. So what we've done today is get the rest of them together, take some photos, look at some specifications and benchmark them to see if Palit, Galaxy, GIGABYTE, AXLE and TwinTech can offer us something a bit more exciting.
Being a round up, we won't be going into huge details on the cards themselves. We'll have a quick look at the package before doing a quick once over on the card itself. From there we'll have a quick look at the specifications and move onto the next card. Our benchmarking procedure has also slightly changed, but we'll cover that under the Test System Setup.
So with more GT 240s than I can poke a PCI-E slot at, let's look at our first one and see what exactly we have going on here today.
