NVIDIA GeForce 940M is placed in the mid-range class. It is commonly used as a multimedia GPU and light gaming. It’s very similar to its predecessor GeForce 840M, but it’s slightly higher clocked. GeForce 940M is Maxwell-based and uses GM108 chip.
NVIDIA GeForce 940M is built with a 28nm manufacturing process and has 384 shader units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs (64-bit interface). It can be found in Microsoft Surface Book with 1GB of GDDR5 VRAM. Because of that, its perfomance should be higher than the normal GeForce 940M (with DDR3 memory), but still slower than the 945M and the GTX 950.
It supports GPU Boost 2.0, Optimus, PhysX, CUDA, GeForce Experience, DirectX 12 and Shader 5.0.
