DxOMark published their test results for the Nikon Coolpix P340 compact camera:

DxOMark conclusion:

Most of Nikon’s work was achieved with the previous model’s revamp over the earlier P310, and this iteration is really only a mild reworking.

The swapping of the built-in GPS unit for WiFi capability seems fair, and seemingly improved battery life but as for sensor performance there’s nothing between the two to choose from. It easily compares with similar rivals but the physically small size of the sensor means it falls short of the pricier Sony RX100 models.
