In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 EVGA SC GAMING ACX 3.0 8GB Edition 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 less than a year after the GTX 1070, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 1070 has 6144 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 1070 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1070 has 176.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 940, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1070 is massively better than the GT 940.

The GeForce GTX 1070 EVGA SC GAMING ACX 3.0 8GB Edition has 1920 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 940 2GB has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1070 is 4624 and the actual shader performance of the GT 940 is 0. The GTX 1070 having 4624 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1070 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 940.

The GTX 1070 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 940. This means that the GTX 1070 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 940.

The GeForce GTX 1070 EVGA SC GAMING ACX 3.0 8GB Edition 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 GTX 1070 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 940. The GTX 1070 requires 120 Watts more than the GT 940 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1070 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 940.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 1070 EVGA SC GAMING ACX 3.0 8GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's High-End GeForce GTX 1070, created by EVGA.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit has been increased from 1506MHz to 1594MHz, whereas the Boost Clock can now achieve 1784MHz, instead of 1683MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
None.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.


Cooling Solution
EVGA ACX 3.0 once again brings new and exciting features to the award winning EVGA ACX cooling technology. SHP 2.0 gives increased heatpipes and copper contact area for cooler operation, and optimized fan curve for even quieter gaming.

Performance
At 1920x1080, Benchmarks Indicate a 2% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 1070. This goes up to 6% at 3840x2160.
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.
