How well can the GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte XTREME Gaming 2GB Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte XTREME Gaming 2GB Edition graphics card can still meet and run indie system requirements and some of the less demanding AAA games. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2019 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte XTREME Gaming 2GB Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 186 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a weak frame rate from Death Stranding with 0 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Borderlands 3 which returns a weak 12 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order which we saw getting a weak 0 FPS.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Death Stranding will deliver weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Next we have Borderlands 3 running on GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte XTREME Gaming 2GB Edition which gets L: 23FPS, M: 18FPS, H: 12FPS, U: 9FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order gets L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS at 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte XTREME Gaming 2GB Edition we get the impression that it is the wrong choice for PC gaming.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte XTREME Gaming 2GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte XTREME Gaming 2GB Edition in your PC? We think this GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte XTREME Gaming 2GB Edition has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 950 Gigabyte XTREME Gaming 2GB Edition? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB which is 121% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 895 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 65% better and can run 684 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.
