In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro K3100M are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce 940MX 2GB.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB has a 416 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro K3100M, but the Quadro K3100M has 40 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 940MX 2GB. As a result, the Quadro K3100M exhibits a 18.3 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce 940MX 2GB. 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 416 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro K3100M, but the Quadro K3100M has 24 more Render Output Units than the GeForce 940MX 2GB. As a result, the Quadro K3100M exhibits a 13.6 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce 940MX 2GB. 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 Quadro K3100M, 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 Quadro K3100M.

The Quadro K3100M has 2048 MB more video memory than the GeForce 940MX 2GB, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro K3100M also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro K3100M has 86.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 940MX 2GB, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro K3100M is much better than the GeForce 940MX 2GB.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro K3100M has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 940MX 2GB is 644 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro K3100M is 542. The GeForce 940MX 2GB having 102 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro K3100M performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB requires 25 Watts to run and the Quadro K3100M requires 75 Watts. The Quadro K3100M requires 50 Watts more than the GeForce 940MX 2GB to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro K3100M may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce 940MX 2GB.

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.
Quadro K3100M is a high-end business card based on the 28nm, Kepler architecture.
Technically the successor to the previous Quadro 3000M, it's based on the Kepler GK104 (despite the SPU count) and offers 768 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs, on a 256-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 706MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 800MHz.
Quadro K3000M's drivers are certified for professional applications only. Its gaming performance is comparable to GeForce GTX 760M.
