In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FirePro W4170M are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 920M 2GB.

The FirePro W4170M has a 250 MHz higher core clock speed but 8 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 920M 2GB. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the FirePro W4170M manages to provide 1.4 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 FirePro W4170M has a 250 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 920M 2GB and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the FirePro W4170M providing 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 less than a year after the FirePro W4170M, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce 920M 2GB and the FirePro W4170M have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The FirePro W4170M has 57.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 920M 2GB, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro W4170M is much better than the GeForce 920M 2GB.

Both the GeForce 920M 2GB and the FirePro W4170M have 384 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GeForce 920M 2GB is 366 and by the FirePro W4170M is 294. Knowing that the shader performance of the GeForce 920M 2GB 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 FirePro W4170M requires 50 Watts. The FirePro W4170M requires 25 Watts more than the GeForce 920M 2GB to run. The difference is not significant enough for the FirePro W4170M 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
FirePro W4170M is a Professional Graphics Card based on the 28nm GCN architecture.
It's based on the GCN 1.1 Mars XTX and therefore offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs on a 128-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked 825MHz and goes up to 900MHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1125MHZ.
Its performance lies somewhere between desktop Radeon R7 240 and Radeon R7 250.
