GeForce 840M 2GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce 840M 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 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 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 1001MHz.


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 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 2GB.

Just watched those specs from here and compared with my GPU-Z.
Corrections according to my 840M viewing GPU-Z:
Non OC Values: (GM108/A2/28nm/2014)
ROPs: 16 /not 8
TexturefillRate: 24.7GTexel/s - GD: 27GTexel/s
PixelfillRate: 16.5GPixel/s - GD: 9GPixel/s (WTF?)
Bandwith: 14.4GB/s - GD: 16GB/s
MemoryClock: 900MHz - GD: 1001MHz
With ca 9% OC it goes way over GD perf values so I am good =)

A very good GFX if you're in for "Light gaming", I can run MGSV: Phantom Pain on high settings 1366x768 40-50 FPS (even though it's just the optimization). If you want a mid-range gaming PC, I recommend these specs.

I play GTA V on these settings: http://imgur.com/a/VRtCj with the 840M and a i5-5200U getting around 30-50 fps.


These are my temps before starting the game: http://imgur.com/gxF8cGd.


These are my temps while playing the game: http://imgur.com/JA6PRaU.


I use SpeedFan to see my temps btw. So my GPU was around the 60 degrees Celcius. Note that I did have Intel Turbo Boost on.

Hi there,my GPU is GeForce 840m. Im confused because why only 2GB here?, In my system settings of NVIDIA it says 6GB approx.Total memory.

Yes, performance will be similar between the 2 versions, because the 840m's memory bus and bandwidth are made for only 1gb vram ;)

Very rarely with the 840m because manufacturers will not find much room to fit the budget of MXM sockets into the budget laptop's price.
