GeForce 940M 4GB Game Requirement Analysis
GeForce 940M 4GB is a Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the First Generation of the Maxwell architecture.
GeForce 940M offers the GM108-N16S-GT-S GPU, which is a First Gen Maxwell GPU. It has support for feature level of DirectX 12.0.
The GM108-N16S-GT-S GPU has 3 Stream Multiprocessors activated and 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 is equipped with DDR3 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 64-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1000MHz.
Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However, because the GPU itself is too weak to work under other circumstances in which 4GB of Memory are needed - such as 4K Gaming, a Large Frame Buffer is mostly a Gimmick.
With a rated board TDP of 25W, it will only be equipped in average sized notebooks.
GeForce 940M is essentially a higher-clocked GeForce 840M. 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 Middle-Class Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
