Gainward GT 640 2 GB
It’s not bad for diminutive rigs, though. The GT does have its versatility to fall back on.
That’s not counting the ugly visage of the many DDR3-based versions, either. Against HD and HD offer better frame gainwafd for not much more money. DirectX 11 p gaming performance Bioshock Infinite: While we’re seeing more mini-ITX chassis capable of housing full-scale graphics cards, it’s still good to see some graphical loving going to the half-pint cases, too.
The quicker HD and HD are only a shade more expensive, vainward both of them are much more capable of giving you a decent gaming setup at p resolutions. That’s where the GT stands apart from the likes of the two HD s we’ve just taken a look at. We’re not talking about anything to do with actual gaming performance here because the GK chip first appeared in mobile form so it’s all about lower power demands and therefore has a chilled outlook on gaming.
This version of the GT is running with a new 6400 of the Kepler GPU that first appeared in the latest series mobile cards, and yet it’s still holding onto the series naming conventions. Although the heatsink is chunky, I was expecting the small fan to end up being a bit of a whiner, but it’s almost silent in operation. The bonus of going Nvidia at this low level is the GeForce Experience software, which is a massive help when it comes to hitting playable framerates.
And really this isn’t the second revision either; if we’re talking about GPU technology, then this is actually the third version of the card.
For a relatively cheap, teeny and quiet discrete card that’s capable of acceptable gaming performance once you knock the settings down a notch or two the GT is a pretty impressive thing.

These benchmarks were gainwward out at ganiward highest p settings with 4x AA, but drop the settings down a little and you’ll easily top 30fps in most titles without much sacrifice. I was impressed by the cooling array on the wee card as well.
DirectX 11 p gaming performance Tomb Raider: And that means it can be jammed into the sort of small form factor PCB Gainward has created for this card. We’ve already seen a Fermi-based iteration tip up before the two Kepler-powered GT s that appeared afterwards.
With this second revision of the GT we seem to have entered a strange alternate dimension where everything is exactly the same, except instead of re-branding its old hardware with new names, Nvidia is updating the hardware in its graphics cards and keeping the name gaiwnard same. For Good for small form factor gaming rigs Good gaming performance at lower settings Low power draw.
And because it’s knocking around the same price as both the HD s, it has the same problems in terms of relative pricing.
So yes, in all there have been five iterations of the GTincluding this latest one.
