    IntelHD 520 vs NVIDIA 940M benchmark question (Asus UX303UB)


      I recently bought a Asus Zenbook UX303UB with a skylake 520 and a dedicated NVIDIA 940M GPUs.


      If I run Cinebench R15 I get a fps at 40.59 with the 520 and 33.88 fps with the NVIDIA 940M.

      In 3DMARK Cloud Gate I get 37.70 fps with the 520 and 31.83 fps with the NVIDIA 940M.

      As far as I can see the 520 runs OpenGL 4.4 and the 940M runs OpenGL 4.5.

      The IntelHD out performs the NVIDIA card in OpenGL applications but not in DirectX applications like CS:GO (CounterStrike: Global Offensive) for example.


      How come?


      I attached images of the benchmarks, sorry for the quality.
