Gigabyte recently introduced their EXTREME range of Graphics card và this product range is available starting from the GTX 950 model.

*

The box cover does not mention any WINDFORCE but the card is essentially an improved WINDFORCE design, the top of the cooler shroud has this WINDFORCE text that is with LED backlight.

*

The backlight is controlled by the OC Guru II software, however it must be made clear that this is not an RGB backlight, you have 7 colors to lớn choose and the 8th option cycles all colors. Lighting behavior is limited lớn breathing, blink & double-blink – all of them allow you khổng lồ adjust the speed of the lighting motion but none of them allows brightness adjustment, brightness adjustment is only available when it is on solid lighting.

Overclocking

The Gigabyte Ge
Force GTX 950 XTREME GAMING is overclocked to the hilt, I couldn’t even get it lớn pass 100Mhz increase in chip core speed. 50Mhz seems lớn work fine but in my opinion anything that’s under-100Mhz could just be left as it is because the gains will not be significant.

Power Consumption

The áp lực was done with Furmark Burn-in Test. Power nguồn consumption reading was taken from the watt-meter, actual power nguồn draw by the entire system from the wall point. I’m using an FSP Aurum S 700W with 90% efficiency & the estimated system power nguồn draw (CPU, not including GPU) during Furmark thử nghiệm is 60w.

At 124W the card draws a lot more power nguồn than the supposed 90W rated power nguồn draw for the reference design.

The Verdict

The Gigabyte Ge
Force GTX 950 XTREME GAMING is priced at around RM 900, not exactly cheap if you consider some Ge
Force GTX 960 graphics cards can be acquired at the same price.

What I think is really neat about this thẻ is that it is almost the performance of a reference Ge
Force GTX 960 2GB graphics card, & on top of that it has this beautiful cooling system và an attractive back plate. Let’s face it, if the performance is quite similar then the next factor for decision making would be the appearance and that’s where the Gigabyte Ge
Force GTX 950 EXTREME GAMING shines.
