In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 940MX 2GB are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 220M.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB has a 622 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 220M. This results in the GeForce 940MX 2GB providing 18.9 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 622 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GT 220M and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce 940MX 2GB providing 5 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 three years more recently than the GeForce GT 220M, and so the GeForce 940MX 2GB is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce GT 220M when running the latest games.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce GT 220M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GeForce GT 220M has 9.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 940MX 2GB, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GT 220M is marginally better than the GeForce 940MX 2GB.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 220M has 32. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 940MX 2GB is 644 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 220M is 40. The GeForce 940MX 2GB having 604 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 GeForce GT 220M.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB transistor size technology is 27 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GT 220M. This means that the GeForce 940MX 2GB is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GT 220M.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB requires 25 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 220M requires 14 Watts. The GeForce 940MX 2GB requires 11 Watts more than the GeForce GT 220M 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 GeForce GT 220M.

GPU Mini Review

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

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.

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.
GeForce GT 220M is an entry-class level GPU of the 200M Series released by NVIDIA in 2009/2010. The biggest hindrance it has is the fact that it only supports DirectX up to 10 so DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
It's based on the architecture 'G96b', same used on the fast-middle-class GeForce 9600M GT and even features the same specifications so the performance should be exactly the same.
Demanding games like Crysis are only playable at the lowest settings while very demanding games are most likely unplayable.
