See link below for Star Wars Battlefront performance results. At 1024x768 resolution and low preset graphic settings the 940m was able to get 49.7 FPS while the 940mx (DDR5 version) is able to get 58.4 FPS. Bumping up to 1366x768 and medium presets, the performance drops to 35.1 FPS for the 940mx (DDR5) and 30.1 for the 940m.

If the 940mx is paired with DDR3 RAM instead of DDR5, then it's performance should be very similar to the 940m.

Your first link didn't work for me.

Anyway, the GPU is the most important part so a 940M should give a good experience though he's want to tweak the game settings for the best experience.

For some games I use "Adaptive VSYNC" (NVidia CP-> manage 3D settigns-> add game-> adaptive vsync.. save).

That forces VSYNC ON if you can output 60FPS and turns it OFF if you can't. So you'd TWEAK the settings so that you rarely drop below 60FPS (if you do you get screen tearing).

otherwise use maybe VSYNC OFF at 40FPS average or whatever works best.
