In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition.

The GTX 950 has a 52 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 960 Ti, but the GTX 960 Ti has 48 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 950. As a result, the GTX 960 Ti exhibits a 47.9 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 950. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 950 has a 52 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 960 Ti, but the GTX 960 Ti has 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 950. As a result, the GTX 960 Ti exhibits a 31.9 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 950. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 960 Ti 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 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 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 960 Ti has 118.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 950, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 960 Ti is massively better than the GTX 950.

The GeForce GTX 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 950 is 1326 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 960 Ti is 1809. The GTX 960 Ti having 483 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 960 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 950.

The GeForce GTX 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB requires 140 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GTX 950 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 960 Ti. The GTX 960 Ti requires 65 Watts more than the GTX 950 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 960 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 950.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Fast-Middle-Class GeForce GTX 950 2GB, created by Asus.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit is now of 1102MHz, instead of 1024MHz, while the Boost Clock achieves 1317MHz, instead of 1279MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
None.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.


Cooling Solution
Twin optimized fans carefully selected by engineers drive 2X greater airflow while maintaining 3X quieter performance, combining enhanced cooling with a more pleasant gaming and computing environment.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate a 4% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 950 2GB.
Overview
GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB is an upcoming high-end 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 GM204-200-KD which has 12 SM activated and thus offers 1536 Shader Processing Units, 96 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The central unit runs at ????MHz and goes up to ????MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1753MHz.

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

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 140W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
Coming Soon!

System Suggestions
We recommend a very strong processor (Intel Core i5 Quad Core/AMD FX Eight Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB.
