In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition 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 GTX 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition and the GeForce GT 940 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 GTX 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 940 2GB has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 950 is 1326 and the actual shader performance of the GT 940 is 0. The GTX 950 having 1326 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 GTX 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 940 2GB requires 60 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GTX 950 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 940. The GTX 950 requires 15 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 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 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.
