In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI Gaming X 4GB 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 less than a year after the GTX 1050 Ti, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 1050 Ti has 2048 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 GTX 1050 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1050 Ti has 32.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 940, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1050 Ti is noticeably better than the GT 940.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI Gaming X 4GB has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 940 2GB has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1050 Ti is 1548 and the actual shader performance of the GT 940 is 0. The GTX 1050 Ti having 1548 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1050 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 940.

The GTX 1050 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 940. This means that the GTX 1050 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 940.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI Gaming X 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 940 2GB requires 60 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1050 Ti and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 940. The GTX 1050 Ti requires 15 Watts more than the GT 940 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 1050 Ti to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 940.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Gaming X 4GB is MSi's higher end take of one of Nvidia's lower end graphics card. It is competing against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the newer RX 470. Part of the Gaming X series, this card features a boosted core clock, Twin Frozr VI cooling system and the usual RGB LED's on the card.

Architecture
The Pascal Architecture aims for twice as much performance as the Maxwell Architecture and introduces support for second gen HBM.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GP107-400 which has 6 SM activated and 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1379MHz and goes up to 1493MHz when the Boost Clock is triggered in game.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 3504MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
The GTX 1050 ti Gaming X will enable mid level graphics performance on modern AAA 2016 released games. Although there will be variations on this frame rate we expect the Nvidia GTX 1050 ti Gaming X to deliver around 60+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
The GTX 1050 ti will be ever so slightly faster than the performance of the outgoing GTX 960

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Gaming X by MSI is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a modern CPU like the i5-6500 and 8GB of RAM for minimal system bottleneck.
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.
