In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 840M 2GB are massively better than the Intel HD i7 3610QM.

The GeForce 840M 2GB was released over a year more recently than the HD i7 3610QM, and so the GeForce 840M 2GB is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD i7 3610QM.

The GeForce 840M 2GB has 2048 MB video memory, but the HD i7 3610QM does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 840M 2GB has 384 Shader Processing Units and the HD i7 3610QM has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 840M 2GB is 583 and the actual shader performance of the HD i7 3610QM is 51. The GeForce 840M 2GB having 532 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 840M 2GB delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD i7 3610QM.

The GeForce 840M 2GB requires 33 Watts to run but there is no entry for the HD i7 3610QM.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce 840M 2GB is a Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The Maxwell architecture features many improvements and among them is the extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GM108 which has 3 SM activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1029MHz and goes up to 1124MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The Frame Buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The memory clock operates at 1001MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.2 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 33W, it will only be equipped in average sized notebooks.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate its performance is over 20% faster than the older GeForce GT 740M. Therefore, it should match GeForce GT 750M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a notebook with GeForce 840M 2GB.
HD i7 3610QM is a specific version of the Intel HD Graphics 4000 that comes with the CPU 'Core i7-3610QM 4-Core 2.3GHz'.
The new features include DirectX 11 and Tessellation support though using them might not be a very good idea since even strong fast-middle-class GPUs struggle with them.
The core-clock is initially set at 650MHz and will go to up to 1100MHz, if necessary.
The performance depends a lot on the driver support and benchmarks indicate that the most demanding games, such as Metro 2033 can only be played at the lowest settings. Deus Ex 3, for example, ran fine at high settings but other demanding games such as Crysis 2 and Batman: Arkham City only ran fluently at medium settings.
