In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FirePro S9150 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 a year more recently than the FirePro S9150, and so the GT 940 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the FirePro S9150.

The FirePro S9150 has 14336 MB more video memory than the GT 940, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the FirePro S9150 also has superior memory performance overall.

The FirePro S9150 has 240 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 940, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro S9150 is massively better than the GT 940.

The GeForce GT 940 2GB has 512 Shader Processing Units and the FirePro S9150 has 2816. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 940 is 0 and the actual shader performance of the FirePro S9150 is 2534. The FirePro S9150 having 2534 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the FirePro S9150 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 and the FirePro S9150 requires 235 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 940. The FirePro S9150 requires 175 Watts more than the GT 940 to run. The difference is significant enough that the FirePro S9150 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to 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.

FirePro S9150 is a server GPU based on the 28nm GCN architecture.

It's based on the Hawaii XT Core (same used on Radeon R9 290X) and therefore offers 2816 Shader Processing Units, 176 TMUs and 64 ROPs on a 512-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked 900MHz while the memory clock operates at 1250MHZ.

Compared to Radeon R9 290X, its central unit is slightly lower and overall its gaming performance is lower than Radeon R9 290X because the latter benefits from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential while FirePro S9150 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its performance to be between 10% and 15% worse than Radeon R9 290X.
