In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 950M 2GB are very slightly better than the AMD FirePro M6100.

The FirePro M6100 has a 186 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 950M. This results in the FirePro M6100 providing 25 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The FirePro M6100 has a 186 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 950M and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the FirePro M6100 providing 3 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 950M was released over a year more recently than the FirePro M6100, and so the GTX 950M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the FirePro M6100.

The FirePro M6100 and the GeForce GTX 950M 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 950M has 8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the FirePro M6100, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 950M is marginally better than the FirePro M6100.

The FirePro M6100 has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 950M 2GB has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the FirePro M6100 is 986 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 950M is 858. The FirePro M6100 having 128 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the FirePro M6100 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 950M.

The FirePro M6100 requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 950M 2GB requires 50 Watts. The FirePro M6100 requires 25 Watts more than the GTX 950M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the FirePro M6100 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 950M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
FirePro M6100 is a Professional Mobile Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the GCN Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN 1.1 Release adds support for AMD's TrueAudio Technology which does calculations of audio effects "better" than the CPU and further improves the Powertune Technology.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Saturn XT GL which has 14 Compute Units activated and thus offers 896 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit Operates at 1100MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The memory clock operates at 1500MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it is suited for 17" or larger laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance on average with the desktop Radeon HD 7790.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Decent Processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with FirePro M6100.
Overview
GeForce GTX 950M 2GB is a Performance Mobile Graphics Card based on the first variant 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 GM107-N16P-GT which has 5 SM activated and thus offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The central unit runs at 914MHz and goes up to 993MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The memory clock operates at 1253MHz. The size of the frame buffer is adequate.

Features
DirectX 12 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 50W, it may be equipped in average sized notebooks.

Performance
Because GeForce GTX 950M 2GB is just a higher clocked GeForce GTX 850M v2 2GB, its performance is only about 5% faster than its predecessors and so GeForce GTX 860M 2GB is still faster.
Still, it still offers decent gaming at 1920x1080 and most modern games should run fluently at high settings.

System Suggestions
We recommend a strong processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a notebook with GeForce GTX 950M 2GB.
