Designed for gaming and HD media playback, this version of the Sapphire Radeon R7 240 graphics card features 2GB of DDR3 vRAM coupled with 384 stream processors clocked at 730 MHz. With enough temperature overhead, the GPU clock can be boosted up to 1050 MHz for better performance.

The output panel on the R7 240 has terminals that can support a variety of different displays. Digital outputs include HDMI and DVI ports, and a VGA output is included to interface with analog displays. The HDMI port will output resolutions of up to cinema 4K (4096 x 2160) to play back high-resolution media without having to downscale.

This card is cooled using a single fan cooler which pulls hot air away from the heatsink. This type of cooler recirculates hot air back into the case and works best in larger cases with unrestricted airflow.

AMD Stream Technology
AMD Stream Technology allows you to use the compute power of your graphics processer on tasks other than traditional graphics such as video encoding, at which the graphics processor is faster than using the CPU alone.
AMD Avivo HD
Watch Blu-ray movies or other HD content at full 1080p display resolution and beyond and enjoy a more feature rich experience with enhanced Unified Video Decoder (UVD).
AMD CrossFireX Multi-GPU Technology
Combine multiple GPUs into a single system to multiply GPU processing power.
AMD HD3D Technology
Enjoy an immersive experience with full support for High Definition Stereoscopic 3D, a technique that presents 2D images (movies, games, photos) in a format that creates the illusion of three-dimensional depth when using compatible 3D displays / glasses / software.
28 nm GCN (Graphics Core Next) Architecture
The 28nm GCN Architecture's more efficient process technology puts more transistors in less space, enabling an increase in processing power.
PCI Express 3.0
PCI-Express 3.0 delivers double the bandwidth per lane of PCIe Gen 2 (GPU communication-up to 16GB/sec in each direction), maximizing the data transfer from your GPU.
DirectX 12
Increased tessellation performance on AMD Radeon GPUs over the previous generation, and DirectCompute performance is also faster to accelerate advanced post-processing, filtering, and anti-aliasing techniques.
OpenGL 4.3
OpenGL 4.3 improves the GPU efficiency by improving the shader process operation and capturing GPU tessellated geometry. The process of modifying an arbitrary subset of compress texture is simplified and the memory management in handling shaders is more efficient as well.
Mantle
Compatible games can interface with the GCN architecture and optimize the GPU performance for the specific application.
AMD Catalyst Control Center
The AMD Catalyst Control Center software application gives you control over the performance and visual quality of your SAPPHIRE AMD Radeon based graphics card allowing you to customize your visual PC experience.
Dolby TrueHD and DTSHD Master Audio Support
Supports high bandwidth, 7.1 channel surround sound over HDMI. Get an immersive, high definition audio experience with Blu-ray movies.
Anti Aliasing Features
Supports advanced AA (Anti-aliasing) features to maximize your enjoyment of high definition gaming.
  • Multi-sample anti-aliasing (2, 4, or 8 samples per pixel)
  • Up to 24x Custom Filter Anti-Aliasing (CFAA)
  • Adaptive super-sampling and multi-sampling
  • Gamma correct
  • Super AA (AMD CrossFireX configurations only)
  • All anti-aliasing features compatible with HDR rendering
AMD PowerTune Technology
Allows the GPU to be designed to run at higher engine clock speeds which can be applied to compatible applications with sufficient thermal headroom.
TriXX Utility
TriXX helps users to get better performance from compatible SAPPHIRE graphics cards in any application by allowing them to monitor, tune and save different settings of key parameters for the card.
AMD App Acceleration
Improves video quality and enhance application performance by leveraging the GPU hardware. Full enablement of some features requires support for OpenCL, DirectCompute, or DirectX Video Acceleration (DXVA).
AMD PowerPlay with ZeroCore Power Technology
AMD PowerPlay is a power management technology in response to the GPU loading, AMD PowerPlay automatically manages the power consumption.
AMD ZeroCore Power technology allows your GPU to consume virtually no power when in idle state. When used with AMD CrossFire technology, it shuts down additional GPUs when they're not in use.
AMD HD Media Accelerator
AMD HD Media Accelerator has been designed to help optimize and improve video playback on your computer by taking advantage of hardware video acceleration from your GPU. With full 3D stereoscopic decode you can enjoy videos in 3D. AMD HD Media Accelerator speeds up the decode of one 1080p and one 1080i HD video streams simultaneously by hardware, and the new hardware encodes/transcoder can quickly processes your media content.
Quad HD Display Support (4K Support)
HDMI output supports 4096 x 2160 resolution.
