XFX Force XFX R7 overview

  • 1Description

The Radeon R7 240 Graphics Card from XFX Force features a low-profile, dual slot form factor and includes drivers for Windows. The card may be used for gaming and other applications that require or benefit from the extended processing power dedicated GPU can provide.

The GPU features a base core clock speed of 730 MHz, which can be boosted (overclocked) up to 780 MHz. It incorporates 320 stream processors, which not only act as general purpose shaders to render display graphics, they also allow GPU-aware applications that support GPU acceleration to perform dozens of computations simultaneously. To help move data to and from the card as efficiently as possible, it features 4GB of 1300 MHz (effective) DDR3 RAM over a 128-bit memory interface.

The Radeon R7 240 can be connected to a variety of display types. These include computer monitors, HDTVs, projectors, and certain 4K and 3D devices. It features a DVI-D (digital only) single-link port, an HDMI port with HDMI 1.4a support, and a VGA port. Through HDMI it is possible to drive displays that have up to 4096 x 2160 (DCI 4K) resolution.

Popular API Support
Supports DirectX 11.2, Direct3D 11, OpenGL 4.3, OpenCL 1.2, Microsoft C++, DXVA 1.0 and 2.0, AMD Stream Processing, AMD App Acceleration, AMD Mantle, and other APIs to allow compatible software to benefit from GPU acceleration, providing faster, more detailed graphics rendering for 3D video games as well as taking much of the workload off your computer's CPU when using GPU-aware applications
Intelligent Power Management
Using AMD PowerPlay and AMD ZeroCore Power technology, the card is designed to dynamically regulate power available to maximize performance while saving energy and avoid overheating in dual GPU configurations using CrossFire, the second card will automatically power off to save energy when not required
Low Profile Fansink
A fan-over-heatsink cooling system is used to ensure the card remains within a safe operation temperature range even while running overclocked
Hardware-Accelerated H.264 Encoding
AMD Video Codec Engine (VCE) allows you to transcode video to H.264 significantly faster than when using software-only solutions
Combine Graphics Cards with CrossFire X
Up to two compatible cards may be used in one machine to extend the total graphics processing power of your system
Image Processing Features
Applies anti-aliasing and other image enhancement filters designed to render smoother, more natural looking graphics. These include:
  • 4x Faster Tesselation than previous generation
  • 24x multi-sample, adaptive anti-aliasing (MSAA)
  • 16x angle independent anisotropic texture filtering
  • Horizon-based ambient occlusion (HBAO)
  • Particle physics and fluid dynamics
  • Partially resident textures (PRT)
  • Multi-threading
  • HDR texture compression
  • Brighter whites processing via Blue Stretch
  • Independent video gamma control
  • Flesh tone correction
  • Color vibrance control
  • Dynamic contrast
  • Dynamic video range control
PCI Express 3.0 x16 Support
Provides twice the bandwidth of PCI Express 2.0; for example, an x8 PCI Express 3.0 slot has the same bandwidth as a x16 PCI 2.0 slot. In addition, the card remains backward-compatible with motherboards using earlier generations of PCI Express
Dual Data Rate DDR3 RAM
Because DDR3 RAM transfers data at two words per cycle, as opposed to one word per cycle with traditional RAM, the effective data rate is doubled. This allows the card to process data transactions as quickly as if it had a 1300 MHz memory clock speed. Additionally, AMD HyperMemory technology places a small cache after the PCI-E interface to help compensate for the fact system RAM is generally slower than graphics memory
Additional Features
  • Decodes: H.264, VC-1, MPEG-2 (SD and HD), MVC (Blu-ray 3D), MPEG-4 Part 2 (DivX/Xvid), Adobe Flash, WMV HD
  • Advanced post-processing and scaling
  • De-blocking, de-noising, automatic de-interlacing, and mosquito noise reduction
  • Edge enhancement
  • 3:2 pull-down detection
  • Supports 7.1-channel surround sound and LPCM, AC-3, AAC, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS Master audio formats
  • Double precision floating point computations
