In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti ASUS ROG STRIX 11GB are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 2GB.

The GTX 1080 Ti has a 558 MHz higher core clock speed and 176 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 950. This results in the GTX 1080 Ti providing 305.2 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 1080 Ti has a 558 MHz higher core clock speed and 56 more Render Output Units than the GTX 950. This results in the GTX 1080 Ti providing 106.4 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 1080 Ti was released over a year more recently than the GTX 950, and so the GTX 1080 Ti is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 950.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GTX 1080 Ti has 9216 MB more video memory than the GTX 950, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1080 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1080 Ti has 382.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 950, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 Ti is massively better than the GTX 950.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti ASUS ROG STRIX 11GB has 3584 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 950 2GB has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 Ti is 7654 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 950 is 1232. The GTX 1080 Ti having 6422 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1080 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 950.

The GTX 1080 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 950. This means that the GTX 1080 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 950.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti ASUS ROG STRIX 11GB requires 220 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 950 2GB requires 90 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 1080 Ti and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the GTX 950. The GTX 1080 Ti requires 130 Watts more than the GTX 950 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1080 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 950.
