14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this GeForce GTX 950 Zotac AMP! 2GB Edition graphics card can still meet and run indie system requirements and some of the less demanding AAA games. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2019 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 950 Zotac AMP! 2GB Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 184 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

A GeForce GTX 950 Zotac AMP! 2GB Edition card at 1080p is seeing a weak frame rate when running Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on Ultra - 5 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order which is 0 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Death Stranding is predicted to perform on this hardware, which gets a weak 0 FPS.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 950 Zotac AMP! 2GB Edition to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare where it was weak. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 10 FPS, Medium: 8 FPS, High: 5 FPS and Ultra: 4 FPS. We added Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order to our tests and saw it was weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched Death Stranding leading us to predict 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 950 Zotac AMP! 2GB Edition we get the impression that it is unable to perform adequately across modern games at this increased resolution.

Yes, every piece of hardware, specially GPU and CPU are good as long as you maintain below 80 degrees., everything under 80 C is fine.

"this is not more powerfull then r9 270x or even worst"
It's not more powerful or worst…then it's what? The same?


This is almost as fast as GTX 960 which is better than Radeon R9 280 and GeForce GTX 760.

that's true but it ends up consuming more power than GTX 960 and for almost the same price. Besides, yours overclocked is still stronger.
This is also the reason why there will surely not be a GTX 950 Ti.

i agree a 950 ti would be kinda stupid if nvidia did launch a totally useless card because it would undermind the 960 and the 950
