How well can the GeForce 840M 4GB run games
28 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce 840M 4GB is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

How many years will the GeForce 840M 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce 840M 4GB in your PC? You should definitely consider replacing this GeForce 840M 4GB graphics card, if it is still in your gaming PC.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce 840M 4GB? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile. This PC hardware upgrade performs 875% better and can run 982 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce 840M 4GB would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB which meets 590 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 507% better performance.

GeForce 840M 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce 840M 4GB 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 which has 3 SM activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1029MHz and goes up to 1124MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB 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 1001MHz.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 33W, it will only be equipped in average sized notebooks.


Performance
Benchmarks indicate its performance is over 20% faster than the older GeForce GT 740M. Therefore, it should match GeForce GT 750M.


System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a notebook with GeForce 840M 4GB.
