EVGA GTX 950 FTW

Recently Nvidia released the GTX 950, a GPU featuring the power and efficiency of the Maxwell architecture, Direct X 12 support, and solid FPS capability @1080p, without the heavy drain on your wallet. Today we are taking a look at the EVGA GTX 950 FTW, which is one of the budget friendly 950’s available on Amazon for 179$.  Featuring a serious factory overclock, ACX 2.0 Cooling, and the great looking as well as functional backplate, it is sure to be a sought after GTX 950 variation. The EVGA GTX 950 FTW is based on a 28nm process on the GM206 core, the same hardware you will find on a EVGA GTX 960. The core contains 2.94 billion transistors and 768 shaders, with 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs paired with 2GB of GDDR5 on a 128-bit memory bus. It features VXGI for realistic lighting, support for smooth, tear-free NVIDIA G-SYNC technology, and Dynamic Super Resolution for 4K-quality gaming on 1080P displays. The GTX 950 is not as limited compared to a GTX 960 as the “budget” tag would have us believe. Will you be satisfied with the performance?  Let’s jump in and get a look at what the EVGA GTX 950 FTW has to offer.
