With the new release of the EVGA GTX 950 FTW, does it actually meet up to its competitors?
For those that enjoy the short answer, Yes, it does. The 950 FTW as you can see from the photo above comes with much improved cooling for budget PCs. You will also notice that it is much larger than the 750's model was, as it holds two fans for cooling. The GTX 950 comes with 768 CUDA cores, 6 streaming multiprocessors, and 48 texture units. For its memory it has 2 GB of GDDR5, clocked at 6600 MHz.
Not everyone may know what these numbers mean however so we bench marked this GPU up against some of its competitors, and it holds up admirably. Running on games such as GTA V, and Battlefield 4 it actually gets better FPS than Nvidia's GTX 750 Ti and 650 Ti, and AMD's Radeon R9 370 and 270.
So what is the price for this little beast? If you click on Amazon, it is 179.99 at the time of writing this. For the price, this is a great budget graphics card that is more than capable of playing modern games at a standard 1080p on normal to high settings on games. How future proof is it? Obviously the more future proof it is, the higher the price will become, evident from the more powerful 970, and 980s. This card is still more than capable for most of your gaming needs for years to come.
