NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950

The GeForce GTX 950 is a GPU from NVIDIA released in 2015. This chip has an average gaming score at 10% in our GPU benchmark.

The GeForce GTX 950 has 2 GiB of GDDR5 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 103 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 128 bits. When choosing a GPU, plan ahead and select a model with enough memory for your needs. High resolutions such as 4K require significantly more memory than 1080p as there is more data to display on the screen.

In terms of clock speed, the GeForce GTX 950 GPU core runs at a frequency of 1024 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1188 MHz. A clock speed is the frequency at which the GPU updates. A higher speed means more processing can happen per cycle. This is useful only when comparing cards of the same generation, as other architectures may process more or less per clock.

As for rendering API support, the GeForce GTX 950 supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.5 features are supported. If your GPU is too old and doesn't support a newer API certain titles may not be playable.

Power and thermals for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 90 watts. This measures the amount of heat the GPU produces when running at 100%. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's a good estimate.
