Colorful GeForce GTX 950-2GD5: 25 facts and highlights
1. GPU clock speed
The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming: 1784MHz
2. effective memory speed
The effective memory clock speed is calculated from the size and data rate of the memory. Higher clock speeds can give increased performance in games and other applications.
Nvidia Titan Xp: 11408MHz
3. thermal design power (TDP)
The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.
AMD Radeon HD 6450: 18W
4. shading units
Shading units (or stream processors) are small processors within the graphics card that are responsible for processing different aspects of the image.
MSI Radeon RX 550 Aero ITX OC: 51232
5. DirectX version
DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
Zotac GeForce GTX Titan X: 12.1
6. memory bus width
A wider bus width means that it can carry more data per cycle. It is an important factor of memory performance, and therefore the general performance of the graphics card.
Sapphire Radeon Pro Duo: 8192bit
7. OpenCL version
Some applications use OpenCL to utilise the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.
XFX Radeon RX 550 Slim Single Slot 4GB: 4.5
8. texture mapping units (TMUs)
TMUs take textures and map them to the geometry of a 3D scene. More TMUs will typically mean that texture information is processed faster.
XFX Radeon Pro Duo: 512
AMD Radeon Pro Duo Polaris: 32GB
10. number of transistors
A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.
Nvidia Titan V: 21100 million
11. Supports 4K resolution
Allows you to view in ultra-high definition.
Colorful GeForce GTX 950-2GD5
74% have it
12. GPU turbo
When the GPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming: 1936MHz
13. render output units (ROPs)
The ROPs are responsible for some of the final steps of the rendering process, writing the final pixel data to memory and carrying out other tasks such as anti-aliasing to improve the look of graphics.
PowerColor Radeon R9 295X2: 128
14. OpenGL version
OpenGL is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
