In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 2GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 940 2GB.

The GT 940 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The GT 940 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 950, and so the GT 940 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 950.

The GeForce GT 940 2GB and the GeForce GTX 950 2GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 950 has 25.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 940, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 950 is slightly better than the GT 940.

The GeForce GT 940 2GB has 512 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 950 2GB has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 940 is 0 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 950 is 1232. The GTX 950 having 1232 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 950 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 940.

The GeForce GT 940 2GB requires 60 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 950 2GB requires 90 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 940 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GTX 950. The GTX 950 requires 30 Watts more than the GT 940 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 950 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 940.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 940 2GB is an upcoming middle-class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed ???? which has 8 SM activated and thus offers 512 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 128-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at XXXXMHz and goes up to XXXXMHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1250MHz.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
Coming Soon!

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 60W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power.

Overview
GeForce GTX 950 2GB is a Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
GeForce GTX 950 2GB Features a GPU Codenamed GM206-250 which is a Second Gen Maxwell GPU. It offers DirectX Feature Level of 12.1 and the Third Generation Delta Color Compression Technology which increases bandwidth efficiency by 30%.
It has 6 Stream Multiprocessors activated and offers 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1024MHz and goes up to 1188MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 128-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1653MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 2GB.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 90W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate Similar Performance to AMD's Radeon R9 270X, using the best suited Resolution - 1920x1080.
As a Result, AMD's Radeon R9 370 is considerably slower and Large Factory Overclocked Versions of GeForce GTX 950, may match GeForce GTX 960's Performance.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 950 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
