NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 LP: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 LP

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 950 LP sales 1 March 2016 at a recommended price of $159. This is Maxwell 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6.61 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 105.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is Dual-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 202 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 75 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.79 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
