How well can the GeForce GTX 950 Galax KFA2 OC 2GB Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this GeForce GTX 950 Galax KFA2 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.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce GTX 950 Galax KFA2 OC 2GB Edition. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2019. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 113.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce GTX 950 Galax KFA2 OC 2GB Edition shows us that Diablo 4 is predicted to get a weak result of 0 FPS, and then we are seeing Death Stranding predicted to return a weak 0 FPS while another game on our list is the Red Dead Redemption 2 which is getting 6 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Death Stranding to predict how the GeForce GTX 950 Galax KFA2 OC 2GB Edition would deal with it. Our research revealed a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Next we looked at Red Dead Redemption 2 which was weak with a 4 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Diablo 4 that we predict will get an Ultra 1440p FPS of 0. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 950 Galax KFA2 OC 2GB Edition running at 1440p is not powerful enough to deal with the increased resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 950 Galax KFA2 OC 2GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 950 Galax KFA2 OC 2GB Edition in your PC? We think this GeForce GTX 950 Galax KFA2 OC 2GB Edition has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 950 Galax KFA2 OC 2GB Edition? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 950 Galax KFA2 OC 2GB Edition then a good choice would be 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB as this is better than 897 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 136% better performance as well. Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 76% better and can meet 686 of their recommended requirements.
