In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 2GB.

The GTX 1050 Ti has a 266 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 950. This results in the GTX 1050 Ti providing 12.7 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 1050 Ti has a 266 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 950 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1050 Ti providing 8.5 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 GTX 1050 Ti was released over a year more recently than the GTX 950, and so the GTX 1050 Ti is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 950.

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 GTX 1050 Ti has 2048 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 GTX 1050 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1050 Ti has 6.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 950, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1050 Ti is marginally better than the GTX 950.

Both the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB and the GeForce GTX 950 2GB have 768 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GTX 1050 Ti is 1443 and by the GTX 950 is 1232. Knowing that the shader performance of the GTX 1050 Ti is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GTX 1050 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 950. This means that the GTX 1050 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 950.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 950 2GB requires 90 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1050 Ti and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GTX 950. The GTX 950 requires 15 Watts more than the GTX 1050 Ti 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 GTX 1050 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is one of Nvidia's lower end graphics card. It is competing against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the newer RX 470.

Architecture
The Pascal Architecture aims for twice as much performance as the Maxwell Architecture and introduces support for second gen HBM.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GP107-400 which has 6 SM activated and 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1290MHz and goes up to 1392MHz when the Boost Clock is triggered in game.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 3504MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
The GTX 1050 Ti will enable mid level graphics performance on modern AAA 2016 released games. Although there will be variations on this frame rate we expect this card to deliver around 55+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
Comparatively, this card will be faster than the performance of the outgoing GTX 960

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a modern CPU like the i5-6500 and 8GB of RAM for minimal system bottleneck.
Overview
GeForce GTX 950 2GB is a Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
GeForce GTX 950 2GB Features a GPU Codenamed GM206-250 which is a Second Gen Maxwell GPU. It offers DirectX Feature Level of 12.1 and the Third Generation Delta Color Compression Technology which increases bandwidth efficiency by 30%.
It has 6 Stream Multiprocessors activated and offers 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1024MHz and goes up to 1188MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 128-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1653MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 2GB.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 90W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate Similar Performance to AMD's Radeon R9 270X, using the best suited Resolution - 1920x1080.
As a Result, AMD's Radeon R9 370 is considerably slower and Large Factory Overclocked Versions of GeForce GTX 950, may match GeForce GTX 960's Performance.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 950 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
