In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 LP MSI OC v3 2GB Edition are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 930 2GB.

The GT 930 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The GT 930 was released less than a year after the GTX 950, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 950 LP MSI OC v3 2GB Edition and the GeForce GT 930 2GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 950 has 89.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 930, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 950 is much better than the GT 930.

The GeForce GTX 950 LP MSI OC v3 2GB Edition has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 930 2GB has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 950 is 1299 and the actual shader performance of the GT 930 is 0. The GTX 950 having 1299 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 950 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 930.

The GeForce GTX 950 LP MSI OC v3 2GB Edition requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 930 2GB requires 35 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GTX 950 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 930. The GTX 950 requires 40 Watts more than the GT 930 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 950 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 930.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 950 LP MSI OC v3 2GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Fast-Middle-Class GeForce GTX 950 LP 2GB, created by MSI.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit is now of 1076MHz, instead of 1024MHz, while the Boost Clock achieves 1317MHz, instead of 1253MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
None.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.


Cooling Solution
Dual Fans Thermal Design: Dual fans covers more area of heatsink to take heats away more efficiently.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate a 3% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 950 LP 2GB.
Overview
GeForce GT 930 2GB is an upcoming middle-class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed ???? which has 3 SM activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 64-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at XXXXMHz and goes up to XXXXMHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1250MHz.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
Coming Soon!

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 35W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power.
