In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050M Ti 4GB are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 940MX 2GB.

The GTX 1050M Ti has a 168 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 940MX 2GB. This results in the GTX 1050M Ti providing 35 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 GTX 1050M Ti has a 168 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Render Output Units than the GeForce 940MX 2GB. This results in the GTX 1050M Ti providing 32.3 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 GTX 1050M Ti was released less than a year after the GeForce 940MX 2GB, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

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

The GTX 1050M Ti has 96.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 940MX 2GB, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1050M Ti is massively better than the GeForce 940MX 2GB.

The GeForce GTX 1050M Ti 4GB has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 940MX 2GB has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1050M Ti is 1443 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 940MX 2GB is 644. The GTX 1050M Ti having 799 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1050M Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 940MX 2GB.

The GTX 1050M Ti transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 940MX 2GB. This means that the GTX 1050M Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 940MX 2GB.

The GeForce GTX 1050M Ti 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce 940MX 2GB requires 25 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1050M Ti. The GTX 1050M Ti requires 50 Watts more than the GeForce 940MX 2GB to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1050M Ti may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce 940MX 2GB.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 1050M Ti is the laptop version of one of Nvidia's lower end graphics card. It is competing against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the newer RX 470. This card has exactly the same performance as the desktop version, only for the laptop market.

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 1290MHz and goes up to 1392MHz 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 will enable mid level graphics performance on modern AAA 2016 released games. Although there will be variations on this frame rate we expect this card to deliver around 55+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
Comparatively, this card will be faster than the performance of the outgoing GTX 960

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a modern CPU like the i7-6700k and 8GB of RAM for minimal system bottleneck.
Overview
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.
