Judging from these statistics since I am coming from a 5 year old Sony Z11 with 330m GPU to an ASUS Zenbook UX303UB with 940m GPU (which should arrive today) this should blow my socks off. Of course there are much more powerful GPUs out there but I should be more than happy with the 940m for occasional light gaming such as Elder Scrolls Oblivion and Skyrim.
