KM3NeT neutrino telescope configurations with different detector components and geometry have been simulated and studied with modified ANTARES software. The physics performance of KM3NeT will be characterised by two parameters: neutrino effective area and angular resolution of the reconstructed muons. These two benchmark parameters are determined and compared for the different simulated KM3NeT options. The advantages and disadvantages of various neutrino telescope configurations will be discussed, together with the latest studies of sensitivity of these configurations to the cosmic neutrino fluxes.
