Average Bench: 33.2% (63rd of 547)

Based on 24,280 user benchmarks.  Device: 10DE 1402 Model: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950

The GTX 950 is Nvidia's latest Maxwell card which is based on a GTX 960 but with 25% fewer CUDA cores and 25% fewer texture units. Comparing the GTX 960 and 950 shows that, as expected, effective speed has been reduced by 25%. The GTX 950 is positioned above GTX 750 Ti which is Nvidia's energy efficient mass market GPU. Comparing the 750 Ti and 950 shows that 950 is nearly 50% faster but it's also priced 50% higher so the 950 doesn't offer improved value for money. Gaming performance for the GTX 950 at resolutions up to 1080p on high/ultra settings will be satisfactory most of the time. That said, the GTX 950 is priced on the high side ($160). At present the GTX 960 ($171) offers 25% better performance for just 7% more money. See a current list of the best value graphics cards here[Aug '15 GPUPro]

Poor average bench

The Nvidia GTX 950 averaged 66.7% lower than the peak scores attained by the group leaders. This isn't a great result which indicates that there are much faster alternatives on the comparison list.

Strengths

Avg. Locally-deformable PRT (Bat) 105fps
Avg. NBody particle system (Galaxy) 93.5fps

Very good consistency

The range of scores (95th - 5th percentile) for the Nvidia GTX 950 is just 11.4%. This is a relatively narrow range which indicates that the Nvidia GTX 950 performs reasonably consistently under varying real world conditions.

Weaknesses

Avg. High dynamic range lighting (Teapot) 85.5fps
Avg. Force Splatted Flocking (Swarm) 72.7fps

Fine for 1080p@60FPS gaming at mid to low graphic detail. I don't expect this to be too useful for gaming in a couple of years, but with it's low power requirements it'll serve a desktop centred system for a at least a few years longer.
