In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 Palit StormX 2GB Edition.

The GTX 950 has a 24 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 950. This results in the GTX 950 providing 1.1 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 GTX 950 has a 24 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 950 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 950 providing 0.7 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the GeForce GTX 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 950 Palit StormX 2GB Edition were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

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 950 Palit StormX 2GB Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the GeForce GTX 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 950 Palit StormX 2GB Edition are the same, which means the GTX 950 and the GTX 950 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the GeForce GTX 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 950 Palit StormX 2GB Edition have 768 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the GTX 950 has 1.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate and 0.7 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, but the has GB/sec greater memory bandwidth. Although the GPUs are very similar in performance, the GTX 950 takes the edge.

The GeForce GTX 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 950 Palit StormX 2GB Edition requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GTX 950 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GTX 950. The GTX 950 requires 75 Watts more than the GTX 950 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 950 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 950.
