Zotac GeForce GTX 950 AMP! Edition 2GB Review – Best GTX 950 in the Market?

Zotac GTX 950 AMP! Edition Test Setup

Zotac GTX 950 AMP Edition Test Setup

I tested the Zotac GTX 950 AMP! Edition in two different systems. The first one is with an Asus Maximus VI Impact powered with an Intel Pentium G3258 processor for our MOBA game benchmarks. Second, I tested the card with an X99 system for the general game benchmarks. I’m having issues with some games, like The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt, with the G3258 CPU. It’s limiting the card’s performance and the CPU can’t seem to coupe up with the game. Thus I tested it on another system to avoid any bottlenecking issues. Below are the rest of the specifications of the test systems.

Aside from the mentioned specifications above and the driver version you see from the GPU-Z screenshot, all games were running on 1080p resolution with V-Sync turned off, and graphics quality was at their maximum possible settings. Unless mentioned on the same page of the benchmark result.

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!

    • There are third party companies who sell after market coolers for GPU, like NZXT and Artic. But I don’t know if it’s compatible.
      I doubt you will be able to find a water block for this specific model.
