NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950A: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950A

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 950A sales 13 March 2015. This is Maxwell architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 64 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is MXM Module card attached via MXM-B (3.0) interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 75 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 9.65 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
