In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 940 2GB.

The GT 940 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The GT 940 was released over three years more recently than the GTX 670, and so the GT 940 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 670 when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 940 2GB and the GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 670 has 112.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 940, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 670 is massively better than the GT 940.

The GeForce GT 940 2GB has 512 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition has 1344. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 940 is 0 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 670 is 1422. The GTX 670 having 1422 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 670 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 940.

The GeForce GT 940 2GB requires 60 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 940.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 940 2GB is an upcoming middle-class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an 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 ???? which has 8 SM activated and thus offers 512 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 128-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at XXXXMHz and goes up to XXXXMHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1250MHz.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
Coming Soon!

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 60W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power.

GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II OC Edition is a Special Edition of the powerful GeForce GTX 670. See the standard version for more information about it.
The new features include an increase in the core-clock that went from 915MHz to 980MHz while the Turbo Boost is now of 1058MHz. A 20% more effective cooler is also included.
The performance boost is significant and around 5% when compared to the standard GTX 670.
Most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
