Today we get our first look at Nvidia's latest GPU in Asus' GeForce GTX 950 Strix. Like previous Maxwell GPUs we've tested, we found that the GTX 950 overclocks nicely. Even though the Asus Strix comes clocked higher than the stock card, it's still noteworthy that it ran at 1,441MHz right out of the box without us having to do anything. We were then able to nudge it up even higher—we got our 950 to 1,483MHz using Asus's included software and 1,518MHz using EVGA's software before experiencing issues. At those clock speeds, the card never got hotter than 70°C, which is noteworthy since the higher overclock was done during a heatwave where our testing environment (a.k.a. apartment) was 90°F. The GTX 950 graphics card is based on silicon codenamed GM206. This GPU is used for the GTX 960 graphics card, but Nvidia has disabled some parts of the GPU to create the GTX 950.Nvidia markets the Geforce GTX 950 as a card for MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) gaming with a 60FPS. ;It ;is supposed to be super responsive with a low latency and provide DirectX 12 and MFAA support.
