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

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this GeForce GTX 950 Galax KFA2 EX OC White 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 EX OC White 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. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 155 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 950 Galax KFA2 EX OC White 2GB Edition can run Red Dead Redemption 2 at 1080p and saw it return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 26 FPS, Medium: 21 FPS, High: 14 FPS and Ultra: 10 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Need For Speed Heat returns a weak 10 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce GTX 950 Galax KFA2 EX OC White 2GB Edition by playing Red Dead Redemption 2 which yielded a weak performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 20FPS, M: 16FPS, H: 11FPS, U: 8FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Need For Speed Heat and that was weak. This graphics card delivered 8 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Borderlands 3 which gets weak results with a 8FPS on Ultra 1440p.
