In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB 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 GTX 960 Ti, 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 GTX 960 Ti.

The GeForce GT 940 2GB and the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 960 Ti has 144.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 940, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 960 Ti is massively better than the GT 940.

The GeForce GT 940 2GB has 512 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 940 is 0 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 960 Ti is 1809. The GTX 960 Ti having 1809 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 960 Ti 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 GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB requires 140 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 940 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 960 Ti. The GTX 960 Ti requires 80 Watts more than the GT 940 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 960 Ti 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.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1753MHz.

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

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 140W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance

System Suggestions
We recommend a very strong processor (Intel Core i5 Quad Core/AMD FX Eight Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB.
