In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R9 390X Sapphire Tri-X w/ Back Plate 8GB Edition are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 940 2GB.

The GT 940 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The GT 940 was released over a year more recently than the R9 390X, and so the GT 940 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the R9 390X.

The R9 390X has 6144 MB more video memory than the GT 940, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the R9 390X also has superior memory performance overall.

The R9 390X has 304 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 940, which means that the memory performance of the R9 390X is massively better than the GT 940.

The Radeon R9 390X Sapphire Tri-X w/ Back Plate 8GB Edition has 2816 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 940 2GB has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the R9 390X is 2585 and the actual shader performance of the GT 940 is 0. The R9 390X having 2585 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R9 390X delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 940.

The Radeon R9 390X Sapphire Tri-X w/ Back Plate 8GB Edition requires 375 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 940 2GB requires 60 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the R9 390X and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 940. The R9 390X requires 315 Watts more than the GT 940 to run. The difference is significant enough that the R9 390X may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 940.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R9 390X Sapphire Tri-X w/ Back Plate 8GB Edition is a Special Edition of AMD's High-End Radeon R9 390X, created by Sapphire.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit is now of 1080MHz, instead of 1050MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
None.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.

Both the Operating Memory Clock and Frame Buffer remain the same.

Cooling Solution
Tri-X cooler Features dual ball bearings in each of the three fans for higher reliability and enhanced Intelligent Fan Control (IFC-II) which turns off the fans for silent operation under light load.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate a 1% Performance Boost over the Reference Radeon R9 390X 8GB.
Overview
GeForce GT 940 2GB is an upcoming middle-class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed ???? which has 8 SM activated and thus offers 512 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 128-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at XXXXMHz and goes up to XXXXMHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1250MHz.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
Coming Soon!

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 60W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power.
