Colorful GeForce GTX 950-2GD5 review: 25 facts and highlights

1. GPU clock speed

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
1026MHz
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.
6600MHz
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Founders Edition: 14000MHz

3. shading units

Shading units (or stream processors) are small processors within the graphics card that are responsible for processing different aspects of the image.
768
MSI Radeon RX 550 Aero ITX OC: 51232

4. 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.
90W
AMD Radeon HD 6450: 18W

5. DirectX version

DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
12
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Founders Edition: 12.1

6. RAM

2GB
Nvidia Quadro GV100: 32.77GB

7. 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.
128bit
Sapphire Radeon Pro Duo: 8192bit

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.
48
XFX Radeon Pro Duo: 512

9. 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.
1.2
XFX Radeon RX 550 Slim Single Slot 4GB: 4.5

10. semiconductor size

A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
28nm
AMD Radeon RX 570: 1nm

11. Supports 4K resolution

Allows you to view in ultra-high definition.

12. number of transistors

A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.
2940 million
Nvidia Quadro GV100: 21100 million

13. OpenGL version

OpenGL is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
4.5
Asus Cerberus GTX 1070 Ti Advanced: 12

14. GPU turbo

When the GPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
1190MHz
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming: 1936MHz

15. 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.
