ASUS Release Ultra Low Power GTX 950 with no PCIe Power

 

ASUS has released a new version of their GTX 950, one that has a decreased TDP and doesn't require a PCIe power connection, allowing the GPU to run at reference GTX 950 speeds without the need for more power than the PCIe lane on your motherboard can provide. 

The original GTX 950 had a TDP of 90W, requiring a PCIe power connector as it is consumed more than the 75W power that can come from a PCIe lane. ASUS' new version of the GTX 950 has a reduced TDP, allowing the GPU to run without a 6-pin power connector.

  • - Graphics Engine: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950
  • - Interface: PCI Express 3.0
  • - Video Memory: GDDR5 2GB
  • - CUDA Cores: 768

Be aware that this card is visually identical to previous versions of the card except for the power requirement.

GTX950-2G is the product code, GTX950-2GD5 and GTX-950-OC-2GD5 both require additional power. From Asus product photos, even the packaging will be the same, so if you are after this one specifically, be careful which one you are buying.Quote

I'm interested to see these benched next to the 6 pin variant, those core clocks and boosts look way low compared to mine.Quote
