Thanks to the voltage tweaking ability that MSI includes, the GT 240 manages to offer some serious performance possibilities at an extremely aggressive price. While it's just another model we find ourselves putting up with till the much awaited GT 300 series greets us, this mainstream low end card is going to bring a smile to a lot of people.
It's funny to see that ATI started with the top end and have started moving down, while NVIDIA are starting at the bottom end and slowly moving up. While we prefer the ATI method for the simple reason we love high end cards, it's exciting to see as each new model comes from NVIDIA that we've got a bit more performance and some decent overclocking capabilities.
We also see the same technologies that will be implemented in the higher end models. The 40nm core seems to be working well for NVIDIA. The big overclock we were able to achieve ultimately shows us that. It's also nice to see the company has finally jumped on the GDDR5 bandwagon.
The Afterburner software from MSI does a good job of giving the GT 240 a bit of life and ultimately offering us some pretty decent performance. Out of the box the performance is just ok and having a look at our benchmark results, we're able to achieve some decent scores at our very high presets. Out of the box you'll probably be looking at 1680 x 1050 at Medium when it comes to gaming, but if you overclock you should be able to either move to 1920 x 1200 or remain at 1680 x 1050 and move the graphics preset up a level.
