Specs; !TB 16gb memory Intel i7-7500U Nvidia GeForce 940MX 2GB

Your specs suggest that you're using a notebook\laptop.
GeForce 940MX 2GB is a mobile graphics card. It's much weaker compared to it's matching desktop card, and 2GB of video ram is not so much nowadays.
There's also Intel i7-7500U, and "U-Series" processors are weaker compared, again, to regular desktop CPUs.
Though 40-50fps does sounds a bit low for low specs still.
To make sure you're only using your nVidia card, you can try disabling Intel HD card. To do this you need to go to Devices Manager (right click on Win icon or My Computer - Devices), and then find intel card there, right click - disable.
You can also try updating nVidia drivers. Mind that sometimes laptop manufacturers release their own drivers, if that's the case then you should take a look at laptop's manufacturer's website for this. However I still prefer to use latest official nVidia drivers.
If these things don't help, then it's just your hardware.
there is no "running it on your graphics card". You would not be able to run the game without one.
