In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 940M 2GB are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce 920M 2GB.

The GeForce 940M 2GB has a 497 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 GeForce 940M 2GB manages to provide 7.3 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 GeForce 940M 2GB has a 497 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 920M 2GB and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce 940M 2GB providing 4 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the GeForce 920M 2GB and the GeForce 940M 2GB were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

The GeForce 920M 2GB and the GeForce 940M 2GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce 940M 2GB has 1.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 920M 2GB, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 940M 2GB is marginally better than the GeForce 920M 2GB.

Both the GeForce 920M 2GB and the GeForce 940M 2GB have 384 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GeForce 940M 2GB is 610 and by the GeForce 920M 2GB is 610. Knowing that the shader performance of the GeForce 940M 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 GeForce 940M 2GB requires 30 Watts. The GeForce 940M 2GB requires 5 Watts more than the GeForce 920M 2GB to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 940M 2GB 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.
Overview
GeForce 940M 2GB is a Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The Maxwell architecture features many improvements and among them is the 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 GM108-N16S-GT-S which has 3 SM activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1072MHz and goes up to 1176MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The Frame Buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The memory clock operates at 1000MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.2 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 30W, it will only be equipped in average sized notebooks.

Performance
GeForce 940M 2GB is essentially a higher-clocked GeForce 840M 2GB. Because of that, it is only slightly faster than its predecessor. Modern games are expected to run at Medium Settings while demanding games will required further reduced settings.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a notebook with GeForce 940M 2GB.
