The GT 940MX GDDR5 GM107 version is a low tier GPU based on the Maxwell I GM107 core, alongside the GT 940MX GDDR5 GM108 version. The GM107 version sports 512 cores, compared to the GM108 GT 940MX (and 840M/940M), but at lower clocks speed. The GPU was in use even after the Pascal series was released, until the MX150 replaced it in practice. Still, the 940MX GPUs family is rebranded as the MX130 GPUs, though it’s basically the same old Maxwell based GPUs.

Performance-wise, the 940M GDDR5 GPU offers adequate performance for 768p low-medium graphics gaming and in some older or less 3D demanding games even at 1080p, like Bioshock Infinite and Fortnite, at medium graphics settings.  Compared to the GM108 variant, there is no clear winner here. Sometimes the higher core count of the GM107 chip has the upper hand, and sometimes the GM108 version with only 384 cores and higher clocks has the upper hand. It’s likely that the 512 cores are sometimes starved by the low memory bandwidth and other factors.

Compared to the DDR3 GT 940M/X, the GDDR5 version offer 20-50% increase in performance in many games.

On average, the newer Nvidia MX150 is at least 50% faster and often is twice as fast for gaming, compared to any of the GT 940MX versions – not surprising given the typical GDDR5 memory and much more efficient Pascal architecture.

{"labels":["Bioshock Infinite, Highest @768p","Metro : Last Light, Highest @768p","Thief, Highest @768p"],"series":[["38.000","15.000","24.000"],["25.000",null,"17.000"]],"chart_gpus":[149018,141414]}

At this point, it would be better to look for other GPUs, even for low priced machines. Laptop with the Nvidia MX150 GPU or the AMD 2500U CPU (with Vega 8 based iGPU) will be much preferable.
