GeForce GTX 950 LP 

Released March, 2016
  • 1 GHz
  • 2 GB GDDR5
If you were to take down the in-game visual settings a notch or two, you could maintain 30FPS+ in nearly any game on the market right now.

Maxwell Goes Mid-Range: Maxwell scales from the GTX 950 right up to the super-enthusiast Titan X. The GTX 950 sits in the perfect position for budget-minded gamers, especially those who are playing MOBA games or first-person shooters like CS:GO.

EVGA Releases NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 Low Power Cards

by Sebastian Peak |
EVGA has announced new low-power versions of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950, some of which do not require any PCIe power connection to work.
In fact, several of these models do not even have a 6-Pin power connector!
Beneath the stealthy exterior, Asus conceals a GM206-derived GTX 950 GPU with 768 CUDA cores, 48 Texture Units, and 32 ROPs as well as 2GB of GDDR5 memory.
The memory sits on a 128-bit bus and while a factory overclock is nice to see, transfer speeds increases will be minimal at best.

New ASUS GeForce GTX 950 2G Requires No PCIe Power

by Sebastian Peak |
Without the need for PCIe power that GTX 750 Ti became our (any many others) default recommendation to turn any PC into a gaming machine (an idea we just happened to cover in depth here).
The full model number is ASUS GTX950-2G, and a listing is up on Amazon, though seemingly only a placeholder at the moment.

Report: NVIDIA Working on Another GeForce GTX 950 GPU

by Sebastian Peak |
This new rumored GTX 950, which might be called either 950 SE or 950 LP according to the report, would be a lower power version of the GTX 950, and would actually have a lot more in common with the outgoing GTX 750 Ti than the plain GTX 750 as we can see from this chart.
The reported specs of this new GTX 950 SE/LP would be nearly identical, though based on GM206 (Maxwell 2.0) and offering greater memory bandwidth (and slightly higher power consumption).
