With 2GB of vRAM and an overclocked Maxwell GPU underneath a Gigabyte custom 90mm fan design, the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 950 Ultra Durable 2 Series Graphics Card can render high-resolution graphics while keeping cool and quiet. The GTX 950 chipset's vRAM is coupled with 768 CUDA cores running at a base clock speed of 1064 MHz with a 128-bit interface. Using the included utility the GPU can be boosted and overclocked to 1241 MHz for more intense gaming sequences or rendering tasks.
The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs. There is a dual-link DVI-I output, a dual-link DVI-D output, an HDMI output, and a DisplayPort output. Using either the HDMI or DisplayPort outputs, 4K resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 with 60 Hz refresh rates can be achieved. The GTX 950 can support multiple displays using NVIDIA's Surround feature for an immersive gaming experience.
Not only for driving displays, this card features NVIDIA's Maxwell microprocessing architecture. Graphics intensive programs can utilize the Maxwell architecture's parallel configuration of the 768 CUDA cores to speed up render times and other tasks that benefit from parallel processing. Maxwell architecture also allows the card to run efficiently and quietly, even under a full processing load.
This GTX 950 features a custom-designed 90mm cooler, which has an airflow optimized cover and aluminum base. The cooler can dissipate heat effectively from the GPU while keeping the fan at lower speeds and noise. The airflow is spilt through the triangle design at the fan edge, and is guided smoothly through the fan by special 3D stripe curve design. At the same time, it effectively enhanced the cooling capacity while reducing air turbulence.
