A New GTX 950 Without Additional Connectors Makes Its Appearance

Asus has released without trumpets and fanfare a new GTX 950 model. This GTX 950 is a special model, being a castrated GTX 950, but which nonetheless has a performance over its reference model. Basically, no extra power supply and all it needs is taken directly from the PCI Express slot, which can provide a maximum of 75W. The video card that is.

The graphics card specifications are as follows:

Graphics Engine: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950

Bus Standard: PCI Express 3.0

Video Memory: GDDR5 2GB

Engine Clock: OC Mode – GPU Boost Clock: 1228MHz, GPU Base Clock: 1051MHz

The frequencies of this graphics card (in any mode: Gaming/OC) are exceeding the reference frequencies of GTX 950. The chip can take advantage of a maximum of 1228MHz in OC mode, with a basic rate of 1051MHz. The stock model frequency reference is 1024MHz. Even the memory is slightly above, from 6.60GHz to 6.61 GHz (WOW…. Amazing).

According to the reference model, the video card requires 90W using a separate 6 pin connector to supplement those 15W. This graphics card will not go over the 75W in OC Mode, nor Gaming Mode.

Also, the OC is automatically reduced as it cannot be supplied in any other way than through the PCI Express slot. From my experience, an Asus Strix 950 can easily be taken to 1400 MHz at 7400MHz with stable memory, but it requires the additional power connector.

At the Cuda Cores chapter and so on, the values remain the same as those found on the reference model. ASUS, you did it again!
