EVGA GTX 950 FTW

Synthetic Benchmarks

Unigine Heaven

Heaven Benchmark is a GPU-intensive benchmark that hammers graphics cards to the limits. This powerful tool can be effectively used to determine the stability of a GPU under extremely stressful conditions, as well as check the cooling system’s potential under maximum heat output. It provides completely unbiased results and generates true, in-game rendering workloads across all platforms.

We cut the GTX 950 FTW no breaks and ran the benchmark with 8xAA ultra settings.

And there we have it folks. Only 3 frames short of the GTX 960 SSC, right out of the box, of course we can’t forget the OC capability of the 960 as well.  A few things to note here: The scores for the other cards were taken on an newer platform, Z170 which potentially offers better utilization of the hardware, so we see the 950 GTX FTW does a great job on older platforms also. If we turned anti-aliasing off the FTW achieved 42 FPS.

3DMark Testing

Fire Strike

Fire Strike is a DirectX 11 showcase benchmark designed for today’s high-performance gaming PCs. It is our most ambitious and technical benchmark ever, featuring real-time graphics rendered with detail and complexity far beyond what is found in other benchmarks and games today.

FireStrike

Fire Strike is only available in the Windows editions.

  • DirectX 11 benchmark for gamers
  • Renders at 1080p resolution (1920 x 1080)
  • For high performance PCs.

The EVGA GTX 950 FTW carried itself well under the heavy load of FireStrike.

Here we see that lack of hardware on the FTW come into play. However with 256 less shader cores and 21 less TMUs than a GTX 960 SSC we give the FTW’s score a thumbs up.

3DMark Skydiver

3DMark Sky Diver is a DirectX 11 benchmark for gaming laptops and mid-range PCs. Use 3DMark Sky Diver to benchmark systems with mainstream graphics cards, mobile GPUs, or integrated graphics.Skydiver

Our EVGA GTX 950 FTW  scored a 23475 on 3DMark Skydiver. Also getting a thumbs up on performance for this result.
