NVIDIA GeForce 940M – benchmarks and gaming tests

NVIDIA-Maxwell-GM2042

Four months ago we had the chance to get our hands on an NVIDIA prototype machine that we used to test NVIDIA GeForce 940M’s performance. It scored around 10% performance leap over its predecessor GeForce 840M. Now, we have a final production unit, but this time found in the new Acer Aspire V15 (V3-574G) and we’re going to run more detailed tests in the next few weeks. But let us first give you some introduction…

NVIDIA GeForce 940M

geforce-930m-3qtrThe GeForce 940M is a direct successor to last year’s 840M and it’s 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 modifications with 2GB or 4GB DDR3 memory.

940M’s TDP is 33 watts and is mostly used in mainstream laptops. It supports GPU Boost 2.0, Optimus, PhysX, CUDA and GeForce Experience.

You can find all of 940M (4GB DDR3)’s specs in its profile page:

Oh man, I was hoping to get a HP laptop with i7 6th Gen and GTX940M 2GB. Seems like this ain’t gonna hold for long.
My budget is near to the price of this laptop and was going to keep the laptop till 2020 and play games at medium.
