NVIDIA GeForce 940MX vs GeForce 940M – benchmarks and comparison

The two NVIDIA graphic cards which we shall compare are part of the Maxwell generation and direct successors to the GeForce 840M. They are 940MX and 940M, and you might encounter them mostly in budget notebooks that are used for multimedia or gaming.

940MX and 940M have a lot in common starting with – they share the same core – GM108. The number of their raster and shader cores or so-called CUDA cores is also the same – 384, and the difference between the two of them is mostly noticeable in the higher base and “boost” frequency of 940MX, as well as in GDDR5 version 940MX, which has GM107-B version with lower frequencies but with more CUDA cores – 512. You can see the similarities and differences between the graphics cards in the table below.
