NVIDIA GeForce 940M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 940M

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 940M sales 13 March 2015. This is Maxwell architecture notebook card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 2 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 14.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 3.0 x8 interface. Power consumption is at 75 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.36 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080.
