In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 EVGA FTW ACX 2.0 2GB Edition.

The GeForce GTX 1070 has a 303 MHz higher core clock speed and 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 950. This results in the GeForce GTX 1070 providing 123 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 GeForce GTX 1070 has a 303 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 950. This results in the GeForce GTX 1070 providing 57.9 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 GeForce GTX 1070 was released less than a year after the GTX 950, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GeForce GTX 1070 has 6144 MB more video memory than the GTX 950, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce GTX 1070 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 1070 has 150.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 950, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 1070 is massively better than the GTX 950.

The GeForce GTX 1070 has 1920 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 950 EVGA FTW ACX 2.0 2GB Edition has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1070 is 4362 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 950 is 1457. The GeForce GTX 1070 having 2905 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 1070 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 950.

The GeForce GTX 1070 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 950. This means that the GeForce GTX 1070 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 950.

The GeForce GTX 1070 requires 150 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 950 EVGA FTW ACX 2.0 2GB Edition requires 125 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GeForce GTX 1070 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GTX 950. The GeForce GTX 1070 requires 25 Watts more than the GTX 950 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce GTX 1070 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 950.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 1070 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Pascal Architecture.

Architecture
It equips a GPU Codenamed P104-200-A1 which is a First Gen Pascal GPU and has 15 SM activated, offering 1920 Shader Processing Units, 120 TMUs and 64 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1506MHz and goes up to 1683MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2002MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 8-pin connector.

Performance
The GTX 1070 is a high end performance GPU, capable of gaming at 1080p across all modern 2016 AAA games at high graphics settings and delivering 60+FPS.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1070 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1600. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
GeForce GTX 950 EVGA FTW ACX 2.0 2GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Fast-Middle-Class GeForce GTX 950 2GB, created by EVGA.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit is now of 1203MHz, instead of 1024MHz, while the Boost Clock achieves 1405MHz, instead of 1188MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
None.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.


Cooling Solution
EVGA ACX 2.0 fans use double ball bearings, which offer 4X longer lifespan than the sleeve bearing fans used by competitors. The oil that is used in sleeve bearing fans makes them vulnerable and prone to failure after time when the oil dries up.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate a 9% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 950 2GB.
