GeForce GT 740M 

Released April, 2013
  • 810 MHz
  • 2 GB DDR3
6 Out of 10

The GT 745M and the GT 740M are pretty much the same as both are based on the 28nm GK107 GPU with 384 CUDA cores.

The cooling scheme is unique and impressive for a low end card featuring a large aluminum fin array heatsink through which a long heatpipe runs transferring heat from the GPU to the shrinks and cooled down by two fans.

In The News From around the web

The core clock is maintained at 993 MHz for the reference models but comes with boost clock which has been absent on the GK107 chips.
Performance figures posted in the same leak show that the reference GeForce GT 740 is actually slower than the GTX 650 while being faster than the GeForce GT 640 GDDR5 variant.

Nvidia announces five new Geforce 700M GPUs

It is not clear how GT 740M ends up clocked higher than the GT 745M but it might have something to do with the maximum Boost.
All five new GPUs will feature Nvidia GPU Boost 2.0, Optimus and Nvidia Geforce Experience technologies.

i am using MSI CX61 2OD-008XTR which has the GT 740M and when i check its specs with gpu-z, it seems 64bit version. please add that version of the card to comparison.
