14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce 940M 2GB is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

How many years will the GeForce 940M 2GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce 940M 2GB in your PC? Its upgrade time for the GeForce 940M 2GB, assuming you are a modern day gamer.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce 940M 2GB? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce 940M 2GB then a good choice would be 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile as this is better than 982 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 821% better performance as well. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce 940M 2GB is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB, which is 474% more powerful and can run 607 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

GeForce 940M 2GB Game Requirement Analysis

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.

Star Wars Battlefront 60fps rock


Metal Gear Solid 5 very stable, 100% playable.


Warhammer total war run fine in 1366 x 768.


NieR Automata 27 fps down to 1366 x 768 in low. Mmm (the game suffers also in my main rig of stuttering) not recommended but playable.

This is a really good card for casual gamers. It won't give you 60fps on new games, but you will hit 30 on med/low settings. For older games, this card is sweet. 45+ fps on most games from before 2012.

In January 2016 this card was rated with 5 stars. Now it's only 3 ;D Time moves fast and yes it can run Doom (2016) with low/medium with acceptable framerate so it isn't that bad at all. 3 is a bit too harsh

GTA 5 with 4GB ram stutter quite often. I played only one hour and stopped. Not a big fan of GTA series anyway, but if you really want to play that without problems, buy another 4GBs

normally these comes on laptops with the resolution of 1366x768, so you should handle most games (pre 2015) rather well with 40-60+ fps at ed-high settings.

GDDR3 is DDR3 but for GPU, so you can tell the difference whether there is any shared memory. Sometimes GPU can share memory with your RAM so it's DDR# and not GDDR
