In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition.

The GeForce GTX 1070 has a 404 MHz higher core clock speed and 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 950. This results in the GeForce GTX 1070 providing 127.8 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 404 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 950. This results in the GeForce GTX 1070 providing 61.1 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 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1070 has 1920. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 950 is 1326 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1070 is 4362. The GeForce GTX 1070 having 3036 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 950 Asus OC 2GB Edition requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1070 requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GTX 950 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GeForce GTX 1070. The GeForce GTX 1070 requires 75 Watts more than the GTX 950 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 1070 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 950.
