GeForce 940M 2GB Game Requirement Analysis
GeForce 940M 2GB is a Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Maxwell architecture.
The Maxwell architecture features many improvements and among them is the 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.
It equips a GPU Codenamed GM108-N16S-GT-S which has 3 SM activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1072MHz and goes up to 1176MHz, in Turbo Mode.
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The Frame Buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The memory clock operates at 1000MHz.
DirectX 11.2 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.
With a rated board TDP of 30W, it will only be equipped in average sized notebooks.
GeForce 940M 2GB is essentially a higher-clocked GeForce 840M 2GB. Because of that, it is only slightly faster than its predecessor. Modern games are expected to run at Medium Settings while demanding games will required further reduced settings.
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a notebook with GeForce 940M 2GB.
