Mine only has 2 GB VRAM and it gets too hot trying to run any game on the lowest graphic settings. Even when I bought it back in 2015 it wasn't a great card. Very disappointed.

I have an ASUS GL552JX since 2015. It has the 950m 2GB and an i7 4720hq. 1TB 5400 rpm. 16 GB of 1600Mhz ram. Takes 10 minutes to boot and 3 more to be usable. The screen is ok. GTA V ~50 fps on normal 1080p but takes like 5 minutes to load. World of Warships ~40 fps on almost all ultra. CSGO and Valorant over 60 but it doesn't matter since the screen is 60Hz. Minecraft over 60 in most cases and ~35 to 40 with mild shaders. Garry's Mod is ok until you get in either a big map like gm_borealis or gm_fork. Having too many addons takes the load time to about 5 min. Escape from Tarkov ~25 fps and lower so it's unplayable even at lower resolutions. Warzone is unplayable. Destiny 2 ~40 fps on 900p and low, very playable anyway. The Division 2 ~37 fps on low and it's playable for the most part, I actually played a lot so I can't complain. GTA IV ~45 fps on normal. Fall guys goes ok but not on max settings. War Thunder and Warframe were playable as far as I remember. Planetside 2 became a mess once you got into a big fight but could it was rather enjoyable. Heroes and Generals is playable. PAYDAY 2 somehow is not. Unturned is playable. CAD is relatively ok but takes a good 4 min to start. Everytime I reload a page in google sound stutters but I guess it won't die for the next 4 months. It's been a good ride, it took almost everything I threw at it, it thermal-throttled once but I cleaned it and it was ok after. It turns off whenever I make pressure on the right side of the mousepad, though I have to say that it has taken some hits from me in the past years, but not now, and even putting my phone there turns it off. WASD keys are almost about to come out. Battery died a good half a year ago. It turns off randomly every few days, and everytime I'm scared it might be the last. It's time for a desktop, 3070 super and Ryzen 7 whatever model AMD comes with in october 2020.

Well for everyday use it is nice.GTA5 at v.high and full hd i hade a decent experience with 30fps. I use it mainly for my video project because i have an i7 7700hq. But you can expect descent results like ghos recon wildlands v.high at full hd i got a full 27 fps and thats nice for a budget gpu. i lowered the resolution to 768p and got 32fps average and it was a good experince.

Good 2 years with a laptop with this GTX 950M DDR3 4GB: GTA V: Medium-High 30fps. BeamNG: Low 20-60fps (depends on how much cars you have and on which map you are). Minecraft Java/Windows 10: 30-100fps High Optifine/40-60fps High. PC Building Simulator: Stuttering 60fps with the "Fps Boost Mod by Sceef" Fantastic. Video editing (Vegas Pro 17), make sure to drop the quality to Draft (Full) and you will be fine, lower the FPS, MP4 videos can lag sometimes, the rest is fine. Cinema 4D works and rendering time is average on Full HD. It's been a good 2 years, time to build a desktop, and use this as my second laptop, 950M --- GTX 960.
