In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon Pro 5600M are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 940MX 2GB.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB has a 122 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon Pro 5600M, but the Radeon Pro 5600M has 136 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 940MX 2GB. As a result, the Radeon Pro 5600M exhibits a 133.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce 940MX 2GB. 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 122 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon Pro 5600M, but the Radeon Pro 5600M has 56 more Render Output Units than the GeForce 940MX 2GB. As a result, the Radeon Pro 5600M exhibits a 55 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce 940MX 2GB. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon Pro 5600M was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 940MX 2GB, and so the Radeon Pro 5600M is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 940MX 2GB when running the latest games.

The Radeon Pro 5600M has 6144 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 Radeon Pro 5600M also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon Pro 5600M has 82.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 940MX 2GB, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon Pro 5600M is much better than the GeForce 940MX 2GB.

The Radeon Pro 5600M has 2560 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 940MX 2GB has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon Pro 5600M is 1714 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 940MX 2GB is 644. The Radeon Pro 5600M having 1070 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon Pro 5600M delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 940MX 2GB.

The Radeon Pro 5600M transistor size technology is 21 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 940MX 2GB. This means that the Radeon Pro 5600M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 940MX 2GB.

The Radeon Pro 5600M requires 50 Watts to run and the GeForce 940MX 2GB requires 25 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon Pro 5600M. The Radeon Pro 5600M requires 25 Watts more than the GeForce 940MX 2GB to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon Pro 5600M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 940MX 2GB.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
\r\nThe Radeon PRO 5600M is an entry-level laptop graphics card which is part of the AMD Radeon RX 5000M series.

\r\nArchitecture
\r\nIt is powered by the 7nm Navi GPU, which has 2560 shader processing units, 160 TMUs and 64 ROPs.

\r\nGPU
\r\nThe central unit runs at 1000MHz and goes up to  1030MHz when the boost mode is triggered.

\r\nMemory
\r\nThe PRO 5600M comes with a 8GB frame buffer of HBM2 through a 128-bit memory interface, while the memory clock operates at 770MHz.  

\r\nPower Consumption
\r\nWith a rated board TDP of 50W, it requires at least a 450W PSU.

\r\nPerformance
\r\nThe Radeon PRO 5600M been built as a Low/Mid performance graphics card for 2020. Its direct competitor is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070M. It will run most triple AAA titles released during 2020 on medium to high graphics at 1080p screen resolution. With adjustments and lowering anti aliasing this Radeon PRO 5600M card can confidently maintain 60+ frames per seconds on high graphic settings at 1080p. Moving to 1440p screen resolution and the graphics card may need to be adjusted down to medium in order to maintain 50-60+ fps.

\r\nSystem Suggestions
\r\nThe Radeon PRO 5600M is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a mid range Ryzen 5 processor and at least 8GB of system memory for optimal gaming performance from the PRO 5600M.
