14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce 940M 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 12 requirement.

How many years will the GeForce 940M 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce 940M 4GB in your PC? You should definitely consider replacing this GeForce 940M 4GB graphics card, if it is still in your gaming PC.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce 940M 4GB? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 821% better and can meet 982 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB which is 474% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 606 games from the most demanding games today.

GeForce 940M 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce 940M 4GB is a Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the First Generation of the Maxwell architecture.


Architecture
GeForce 940M offers the GM108-N16S-GT-S GPU, which is a First Gen Maxwell GPU. It has support for feature level of DirectX 12.0.
The GM108-N16S-GT-S GPU has 3 Stream Multiprocessors activated and offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs.


GPU
The central unit runs at 1072MHz and goes up to 1176MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with DDR3 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 64-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1000MHz.


Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However, because the GPU itself is too weak to work under other circumstances in which 4GB of Memory are needed - such as 4K Gaming, a Large Frame Buffer is mostly a Gimmick.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 25W, it will only be equipped in average sized notebooks.


Performance
GeForce 940M is essentially a higher-clocked GeForce 840M. 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 Middle-Class Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
