In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R9 370X are significantly 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 Radeon R9 370X, 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 Radeon R9 370X.

The Radeon R9 370X and the GeForce GT 940 2GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Radeon R9 370X has 99.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 940, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon R9 370X is massively better than the GT 940.

The Radeon R9 370X has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 940 2GB has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R9 370X is 1142 and the actual shader performance of the GT 940 is 0. The Radeon R9 370X having 1142 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon R9 370X delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 940.

The Radeon R9 370X requires 180 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 940 2GB requires 60 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the Radeon R9 370X and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 940. The Radeon R9 370X requires 120 Watts more than the GT 940 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Radeon R9 370X may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 940.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R9 370X is a Performance Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
Radeon R9 370X Features a GPU Codenamed Trinidad XT which is a First Gen GCN GPU. It is essentially a Pitcairn XT GPU like seen on Radeon HD 7870. As a result, it doesn't support for modern technologies like TrueAudio, ZeroPower or Powertune.
Trinidad XT has 20 Compute Units Unlocked and offers 1280 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit is Initially Clocked at 1000MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1400MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 2GB.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 110W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
Performance is identical to Radeon R9 270X.

System Suggestions
Radeon R7 370X is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB 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
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.
