NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950A: specs and benchmarks
- Interface MXM-B (3.0)
- Core clock speed 993 MHz
- Max video memory 2 GB
- Memory type DDR3
- Memory clock speed 2002 MHz
- Maximum resolution
NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 950A sales 13 March 2015. This is a Maxwell architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 2 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 2 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 32.03 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is 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
of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.

Synthetic benchmark performance of GeForce GTX 950A. Overall performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
- GeekBench 5 OpenCL
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
Benchmark coverage: 24%
GeekBench 5 OpenCL
Geekbench 5 is a widespread graphics card benchmark combined from 11 different test scenarios. All these scenarios rely on direct usage of GPU's processing power, no 3D rendering is involved. This variation uses OpenCL API by Khronos Group.
Benchmark coverage: 8%
