In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 460 4GB 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 RX 460, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The RX 460 has 2048 MB more video memory than the GT 940, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GT 940 has superior memory performance.

The GT 940 has 80 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 460, which means that the memory performance of the GT 940 is much better than the RX 460.

The Radeon RX 460 4GB has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 940 2GB has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 460 is 1075 and the actual shader performance of the GT 940 is 0. The RX 460 having 1075 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 460 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 940.

The RX 460 transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 940. This means that the RX 460 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 940.

The Radeon RX 460 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 940 2GB requires 60 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the RX 460 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 940. The RX 460 requires 15 Watts more than the GT 940 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the RX 460 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 940.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon RX 460 4GB is an Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the 4th Generation of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Baffin XT which has 14 Compute Units activated and thus 896 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it requires at least a 350W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power, meaning no Extra Connectors are required.

Performance
This graphics card was designed and marketed towards the competitive MOBO gamers. A light weight, small form factor GPU solution that offers mobility, so that gamers travelling to events can bring a smaller cheaper gaming rig. The Radeon RX 460 4GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 1600p screen res and expect around 45+FPS

System Suggestions
Radeon RX 460 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. 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.
