In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the GeForce 920M 2GB and the GT 740M are equal.

The GT 740M has a 405 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GeForce 920M 2GB. This results in the GT 740M providing 13 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GT 740M has a 405 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 920M 2GB and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GT 740M providing 3.2 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce 920M 2GB was released over a year more recently than the GT 740M, and so the GeForce 920M 2GB is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GT 740M.

The GeForce 920M 2GB and the GeForce GT 740M 64-bit Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the GeForce 920M 2GB and the GeForce GT 740M 64-bit Edition are the same, which means the GeForce 920M 2GB and the GT 740M have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the GeForce 920M 2GB and the GeForce GT 740M 64-bit Edition have 384 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GT 740M is 406 and by the GeForce 920M 2GB is 406. Knowing that the shader performance of the GT 740M is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GeForce 920M 2GB requires 25 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 740M 64-bit Edition requires 33 Watts. The GT 740M requires 8 Watts more than the GeForce 920M 2GB to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 740M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 920M 2GB.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce 920M 2GB is an Entry-Level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Kepler Architecture.

Architecture
This Graphics Card Equips the Kepler GK208 GPU which is essentially a power optimized version of the GK107 GPU. Whereas it still has a count of 2 Stream Multiprocessors, the bus-width has been cut in half to allow for even a smaller power consumption and consequently a cooler operating temperature.
Additionally, the GK208 GPU allows the Central Unit to reach a significant higher frequency, thanks to the Kepler Boost 2.0 Technology. The better the laptop's cooling system, the higher the frequency.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GK208-N16V-GM which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is Initially clocked at 575MHz and goes up to 954MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 25W, it is suited for small laptops.

Performance
GeForce 920M 2GB is essentially a slightly faster GeForce GT 735M and offers more or less comparable performance.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Processor and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 920M 2GB.
