GeForce GT 740M 

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

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.

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.

NVIDIA Quadro M6000 Announced

by Scott Michaud |
I wonder what this means for the Tesla line, and whether we will see a variant of Maxwell with a large boost in 64-bit performance, or if that line will be in an awkward place until Pascal.
The memory, but not the cache, is capable of ECC (error-correction) for enterprises who do not want a stray photon to mess up their computation.
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

by Slobodan Simic |
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.
