In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 920MX 2GB are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 445M v2.

The GeForce 920MX 2GB has a 318 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GT 445M. This results in the GeForce 920MX 2GB providing 7.6 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce 920MX 2GB has a 318 MHz higher core clock speed than the GT 445M, but the GT 445M has 8 more Render Output Units than the GeForce 920MX 2GB. As a result, the GT 445M exhibits a 2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce 920MX 2GB. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce 920MX 2GB was released over three years more recently than the GT 445M, and so the GeForce 920MX 2GB is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GT 445M when running the latest games.

The GeForce 920MX 2GB has 1024 MB more video memory than the GT 445M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GT 445M has 4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 920MX 2GB, which means that the memory performance of the GT 445M is marginally better than the GeForce 920MX 2GB.

The GeForce 920MX 2GB has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 445M v2 has 144. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 920MX 2GB is 460 and the actual shader performance of the GT 445M is 164. The GeForce 920MX 2GB having 296 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 920MX 2GB delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 445M.

The GeForce 920MX 2GB transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 445M. This means that the GeForce 920MX 2GB is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 445M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GeForce 920MX 2GB should consume less power than the GT 445M.

The GeForce 920MX 2GB requires 25 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 445M v2 requires 35 Watts. The GT 445M requires 10 Watts more than the GeForce 920MX 2GB to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 445M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 920MX 2GB.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce 920MX 2GB is an Entry-Level Mobile Graphics Card based on the Maxwell Architecture.

GeForce 920MX 2GB Features a GPU Codenamed GM108-N16V-GMR which is a First Gen Maxwell GPU and is identical to the GM108-N16S-GM used on GeForce 930M but with the addition of GDDR5 Support.
GM108-N16V-GMR has 3 Compute Units Unlocked and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs.

The Central Unit is Clocked at ????Hz and goes up to ????MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 64-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1125MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 2GB.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 15W, it is suited for very small and small sized laptops.

Performance Not Known Yet.

System Suggestions
GeForce 920MX 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We Recommend a Middle-Class Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
GeForce GT 445M v2 is a Fast-Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GF106-N11E-GE-A1 which has 3 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 144 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 570MHz.

The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 625MHz.

DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 35W, it is suited for 15" or larger laptops.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance almost on level with the desktop GeForce GT 450 v4.

System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 445M v2.
