Released in 2015, the GeForce GTX 950M is a GPU from NVIDIA. According to our GPU Benchmark, this GPU is a bad card for gaming with a score of 6%.

It has a total memory bandwidth of 28 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 128 bits.

In terms of clock speed, the GeForce GTX 950M GPU core runs at a frequency of 993 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1124 MHz. The core clock is directly related to the performance of a GPU, the higher the clock, the more processing can be done per second. A higher clock does not guarantee better performance by itself, this also depends on the number of shading units and other elements of the pipeline.

As for rendering API support, the GeForce GTX 950M supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 features are supported. If your GPU is too old and doesn't support a newer API certain titles may not be playable.

This chip has a Thermal Design Power of 75W: the total amount of waste heat generated. A card that runs hotter will need better cooling and will draw more power from the wall.
