NVIDIA GeForce 940A: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 940A

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 940A sales 13 March 2015. This is Maxwell architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 2 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 16.02 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is an integrated video card. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 33 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.37 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.

Overall score

This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.

4.37

Passmark

This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
