In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB 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 980 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 980 Ti.

The GTX 980 Ti has 4096 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 GTX 980 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 980 Ti has 256.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 940, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 980 Ti is massively better than the GT 940.

The GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB has 2816 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 940 2GB has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 980 Ti is 4091 and the actual shader performance of the GT 940 is 0. The GTX 980 Ti having 4091 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 980 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 940.

The GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB requires 250 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 940 2GB requires 60 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 980 Ti and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 940. The GTX 980 Ti requires 190 Watts more than the GT 940 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 980 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 940.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB is an Enthusiast Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The Second variant of the Maxwell Architecture, despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, has an extremely large L2 Cache and features a Third Generation Delta Color Compression 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.
The Second Revision of Maxwell also adds VXGI (Voxel Global Illumination) which makes scenes significantly more lifelike and believable as light interacts more realistically in the game environment and the MFAA technology which provides the same effect as MSAA but at a much lower performance cost.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GM200-310-A1 which has 22 SM activated and thus 2816 Shader Processing Units, 176 TMUs and 96 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1000MHz and goes up to 1076MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 384-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1753MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 250W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with one available 6-pin and one available 8-pin connectors.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate its performance is slightly above AMD's Dual Radeon R9 295X2 at 1920x1080 but at any resolution above that, the latter proves to be faster.
As expected, $999 GeForce GTX Titan X is also slightly faster but GeForce GTX 980 is beaten in around 20%.
Even so, GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB is not a competitive product because a solution of two GeForce GTX 970 in SLI is still much faster and doesn't come at a much higher cost ($658 against $649).

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1600. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
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

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.
