In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 940MX 2GB are massively better than the Nvidia NVS 4200M.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB was released over three years more recently than the NVS 4200M, 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 NVS 4200M when running the latest games.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB has 1024 MB more video memory than the NVS 4200M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce 940MX 2GB also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the NVS 4200M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 940MX 2GB is marginally better than the NVS 4200M.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB has 384 Shader Processing Units and the NVS 4200M has 48. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 940MX 2GB is 644 and the actual shader performance of the NVS 4200M is 78. The GeForce 940MX 2GB having 566 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 NVS 4200M.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the NVS 4200M. This means that the GeForce 940MX 2GB is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the NVS 4200M.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB requires 25 Watts to run but there is no entry for the NVS 4200M.

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.
NVS 4100M is an entry-level business card with support for special drivers that are certified for professional applications like Microsoft Office Suite, Hummingbird Exceed, Lotus Notes, etc. It's part of the NVS Mobile Series released by NVIDIA, in 2010/2011.
Though business cards have no driver support for games, some of them deliver astonishing performance (e.g. Quadro 6000, Tesla C2075). NVS 4100M does support DirectX 10.1 but the limited Memory Bus and all the rest put together result in poor gaming performance. Still, it should be enough to handle demanding games like, Crysis 2, on the lowest settings possible but games like Metro 2033 are probably unplayable at the lowest settings.
