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

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this GeForce GTX 950 Zotac 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 is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2019. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 950 Zotac OC 2GB Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 113 games in todays list.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 950 Zotac OC 2GB Edition is running Planet Zoo and delivering weak performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 0 frames per second. Comparing this to Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order which is getting weak results, where it averages 0 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Borderlands 3, which is running at 6 frames per second.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Planet Zoo which delivered weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Next we have Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order running on GeForce GTX 950 Zotac OC 2GB Edition which gets L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Borderlands 3 gets L: 11FPS, M: 9FPS, H: 6FPS, U: 4FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 950 Zotac OC 2GB Edition is going to underperform if you try and run modern games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 950 Zotac OC 2GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 950 Zotac OC 2GB Edition in your PC? Its time to start researching your next graphics card upgrade as the GeForce GTX 950 Zotac 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 Zotac OC 2GB Edition? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB which is 136% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 897 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 950 Zotac OC 2GB Edition is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which is 76% more powerful and can run 686 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.
