How well can the GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 2GB Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 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.

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 2GB Edition where we look at the bigger games played in 2019. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 101 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 2GB Edition shows us that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is getting a weak result of 0 FPS, and then we are seeing Cyberpunk 2077 predicted to return a weak 0 FPS while another game on our list is the Red Dead Redemption 2 which is getting 5 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 2GB Edition to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have researched Cyberpunk 2077 and predict it will be weak. The frame rates predicted for the game presets were - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We added Red Dead Redemption 2 to our tests and saw it was weak with a 3 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which got 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 2GB Edition is not a viable PC gaming choice.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 2GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 2GB Edition in your PC? Its time to start researching your next graphics card upgrade as the GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 2GB Edition is failing to meet modern day gaming system requirements. A gpu AAA lifespan of around 6-12 months.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 2GB Edition? Are you looking to upgrade a GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 2GB Edition? Then we would suggest getting a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, as it can run 899 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 142% increased graphics performance. Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 2GB Edition then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB as this is better than 683 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 78% better performance as well.

Don't have much to add. Bought it in early December - no regrets. Managed to run most of the newer games on either high or ultra. I anyone were to ask me, I'd recommend it to anyone thinking of buying it.

that was a bug in the system. It sometimes happens.
Note that GTX 960 is a very weak Rank 9. You can tell by the Rank at 1920x1080 that it's 8.7, meaning that if it becomes 8.4, it will be a rank 8 instead.
Ranks go down as new and more powerful hardware is released.
