Explain why GT 640 is bad for gaming. - Page 3

post #21 of 22
It depends on the game & resolution really, but the HD 7750 (or even the HD6670) is a better buy unless you need CUDA/PhysX

For most everything from 2011 or 2012 it won't have enough power to do 1080p without AA

Diablo III barely makes 50FPS on 1080p though: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gt-640-review,3214-9.html

It gets <40FPS on WoW at 1680x1050 4xAA, http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Zotac/GeForce_GT_640/23.html

GT 640 gets <50FPS on Starcraft II http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Zotac/GeForce_GT_640/20.html

GT 640 gets 40FPS on 1680x1050 in BF3, 60FPS on Civ3 on low with no AA : http://www.anandtech.com/show/5969/zotac-geforce-gt-640-review-/10

HD7750 is about 50% faster: http://techreport.com/review/23179/review-nvidia-geforce-gt-640-graphics-card/4 , http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gt-640-review,3214-3.html

Also GT 640 is not all Kepler, it's a rebranded Fermi in some cases. For Kepler you need GTX 650 or above.

the radeon 7750 is hands down the best graphics card for the money that you can find in india right now below 8k. its the much faster than 640 and matches the 650 while consuming much less power and without requiring a new power supply. i have the 7750 and it cost me 7.5k but right now you can find it for less than that which is a great deal. this is the particular card i have and you can buy it from here at a good price.

i can max out or almost max out games at 1440*900. so get this one without a doubt thumb.gif
