Brief Review – Gaming performance Nvidia GTX 950

A brief look into the performance number for the Nvidia GTX 950, a more detailed review will follow in couple of days, after playing with the beautiful little beast.

Data Source Nvidia

Nvidia GTX 950 Game performance benchmark

The GTX 950 opens up a big gap in terms of performance Vs the Nvidia GTX 750 Ti, a performance increase of about 20%, depending on game titles. Considering the price difference is not too much the graphics card looks absolute value for money. The GTX 950 almost try to touch the GTX 960, as per the data by Nvidia.

Benchmarks Vs the Nvidia GTX 950 and GTX 650

A major upgrade Vs the Nvidia GTX 650, the Nvidia GTX 950 offers a 3X performance boost. Even considering the performance of Nvidia GTX 750 Ti we can expect in range of 15% to 25% boost in performance.

3x the performance of Nvidia Gtx 650

Game Performance Nvidia GTX 950 Vs Nvidia GTX 750 Ti VS GTX 960 Vs AMD R9 370 Vs AMD R9 270X

Gaming Benchmark Battlefield 4 Nvidia GTX 950

Data Source Nvidia, Over-clockers

The Nvidia GTX 950 easily beat the AMD mid range cards both the AMD R7 270X and AMD 370 easily. The GTX 950 offers the performance of GTX 760 which was priced around Rs. 17,000. Looking at the performance numbers the GTX 950 can be an ideal choice for mid range gaming pc rigs for a budget of Rs. 40K to 55K. Beyond that we can try to squeeze in the Nvidia GTX 960.

Earlier article. Dated July 28, 2015 – Candytech Reported 

We have just got updates Nvidia is expected to launch the new GTX 950 on 21 August 2015 almost 20 days from today.

The rumors are pretty strong and details have emerged online, we earlier had the impression that the new graphics card will be called as the Nvidia GTX 950 Ti now the reports confirm that the graphics card will be known as Nvidia GTX 950 only and the Ti version may not get launched.

KEY Specifications Nvidia GTX 950

The Nvidia GTX 950 is going to be based on the GM206 Maxwell GPU architecture and will have 768 Cuda cores with 48 texture mapping units and 32 ROPs.

The GTX 960 on the other hand has 1024 Cuda cores with 128 Bit memory interface and memory clock of 7 GB/PS.

The Nvidia GTX 950 is expected to have 2 GB of GDDR 5 memory and 128 Bit bus width, the graphics card is going to be highly energy efficient like the other Maxwell graphics cards. The graphics card will allegedly have 90 Watts of power and will run on less than 400 Watts PSU with a single 8 pin connector.

The core clock is expected to be 1150 to 1250 MHz with boost upto 1400 Mhz this can give decent gaming performance for mid range range PC setups.

The memory clock is expected to be around 6.5 Ghz to 6.75 Ghz. We can expect a performance boost of approx. 10% vs the current generation Nvidia GTX 750 ti in various gaming titles.

The pricing in the international market will be close to $150 give and take few dollars and it will be priced close to Rs.12,000 in the Indian market.  The current Nvidia GTX 750 Ti is priced close to Rs. 11,000 in the Indian market.

The graphics card will be ideal to play the gaming titles like GTA 5, Assassin’s creed unity, Fifa 16, Battlefield and Witcher 3 on 720P display. For 1080P you will need some thing more exotic like the AMD R9 380 or the Nvidia GTX 960 or GTX 970 to enjoy the games at high/ultra details.

Nvidia launched the GTX 980 and 970 in the end of year 2014 in November and later launched the Nvidia GTX 960 in February 2015 catering to the mid and high end segments.

It is time that the lower mid range get an upgrade from the existing GTX 750 and GTX 750 ti. Infact AMD has done the lower range refresh twice after the Nvidia GTX 750 and 750 TI were launched.  AMD launched the AMD R7 260x and AMD R7 270x and in June 2015 have rebranded and re-launched the AMD R7 370 and AMD R7 360 which currently compete with the Nvidia GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti.

We have just got updates Nvidia is expected to launch the new GTX 950 on 17 August 2015 almost 20 days from today.

The rumors are pretty strong and details have emerged online, we earlier had the impression that the new graphics card will be called as the Nvidia GTX 950 Ti now the reports confirm that the graphics card will be known as Nvidia GTX 950 only and the Ti version may not get launched.

Let’s wait and watch what Nvidia reveals in the coming month! Stay tuned for more updates on Candytech.

  1. I have gtx 750ti +fx6300 , I m getting only 20 to 27 fps in ACU at medium setting @1080. also dying light gives only about 12 to 16 17 fps in max setting despite of fact it is printed on my zotac 750ti box saying ‘get stunning 1080p performance in even the most gp intensive games’ also my rig takes 30 sec to boot win 8 with fast boot enabled in bios as well as in os. help?

    • did u asked anybody before buying a 1080P monitor with a 750 ti , it is good for 720P a GTX 960 or 970 is good for 1080P. you can lower the settings , reduce resolution update drivers thats all i can suggest , let me know if that helps.

    • ya I know that , I asked you! but still I bough that but I am still feeling good at my way because I got it for 9.5k from SD and saved 6.5 k without going with 270x (including a 1 k on PSU). what about my windows boot time it boots in 30 sec compared to my old laptop with boot time of 15 sec and and my frnds of 10 sec. that too on a low spec PC.

    • I am on a 7200rpm HDD the fact is that I have never seen any PC booting win 8 in more than 20 sec also I saw a video on YouTube in which one’s PC with similar spec of mine booted in 6 7 sec

  2. Gtx 950 at 14.5k is worthless
    i mean for rs 500 more you can get gtx 960.
    Last time I checked asus strix gtx 960 2gb was 15.02k rs

    gtx 750 ti is available as low as 9.5k
    rs

    Had been the price of 950 around 11-12k
    it could have made sense.
    Or it will make after its price drops.
    (most likely near december)
