In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 940MX 2GB are massively better than the Intel HD Graphics Mobile (Haswell).

The GeForce 940MX 2GB has a 922 MHz higher core clock speed and 20 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics Mobile. This results in the GeForce 940MX 2GB providing 26.1 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 940MX 2GB has a 922 MHz higher core clock speed and 6 more Render Output Units than the Graphics Mobile. This results in the GeForce 940MX 2GB providing 8.6 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB was released over a year more recently than the Graphics Mobile, and so the GeForce 940MX 2GB is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Graphics Mobile.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB has 2048 MB video memory, but the Graphics Mobile does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB has 384 Shader Processing Units and the HD Graphics Mobile (Haswell) has 10. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 940MX 2GB is 644 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics Mobile is 49. The GeForce 940MX 2GB having 595 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 940MX 2GB delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Graphics Mobile.

The Graphics Mobile transistor size technology is 6 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 940MX 2GB. This means that the Graphics Mobile is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 940MX 2GB.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB requires 25 Watts to run and the HD Graphics Mobile (Haswell) requires 4 Watts. The GeForce 940MX 2GB requires 21 Watts more than the Graphics Mobile to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 940MX 2GB to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Graphics Mobile.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce 940MX 2GB is a Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the Maxwell Architecture.

Architecture
GeForce 940MX 2GB Features a GPU Codenamed GM108-N16S-GTR which is a First Gen Maxwell GPU and is identical to the GM108-N16S-GT-S used on GeForce 940M but with the addition of GDDR5 Support.
GM108-N16S-GTR has 3 Compute Units Unlocked and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit is Clocked at 1122Hz and goes up to 1242MHz, 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 1001MHz.

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

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 25W, it is suited for small and medium sized laptops.

Performance
Equipped with DDR3, GeForce GT 940MX is only slightly faster than GeForce GT 940M.

System Suggestions
GeForce 940MX 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We Recommend a Middle-Class Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Intel HD Graphics Mobile (Haswell) are integrated graphics in the budget Celeron and Pentium Haswell Mobile processors.
Their performance depends on the processor they are integrated on, as the latter defines the Base and Boost Clock, as well as on the SYSTEM RAM, which defines the operating memory clock, and whether the GPU accesses a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface.
Best case scenario, the Intel HD Graphics Mobile (Haswell) perform slightly above Intel HD 3000 Graphics and so most modern demanding games will have to be played with the lowest settings, while some aren't even playable.
