The GeForce GTX 950 series is a nice mid-way product both in terms of performance and price. As such it is a go to card for a lot of people, especially MOBA gamers that don’t require the horsepower that comes from the flagship cards. Colorful just launched two new cards based around just that GPU, the Colorful 950-2GD5 and the iGame 950-2GD5 Ymir-U graphics cards. Both of these cards feature the second-generation Maxwell GPU from NVIDIA that brings a high efficiency per watt and thereby a lower power bill and a need for less wattage from your power supply.
The Colorful iGame 950-2GD5 Ymir-U is the latest member of the iGame family and comes with features that usually are found on high-end cards. The iGame features include high-performance GDDR5 memory, Silver Plating Technology for improved stability compared to regular PCBs together with the iGame Pure-Power Inductance (IPP) assuring stable power delivery, low operating temperatures, and reduced electromagnetic interference.
To further aid in performance, the custom iGame cooler features Bio-Shark design fans for 30% more cooling efficiency in tandem with the sand-blasted cooling module. The iGame 950 2GD5 Ymir-U also feature a semi-passive cooling solution that won’t start up until the temperatures reach 60 degrees. The final extra touch in this edition is the hardware overclock button located on the rear of the card and allowing the user to gain higher clock speeds instantly and without any expert knowledge.
The Colorful 950-2GD5 graphics card is basically the same card, but without the bells and whistles. It’s a basic GM206-based graphics card for mid-range and MOBA gaming. The card still features the shark fin fans that are rated for maximum cooling for up to 30,000 hours and the same cooling design.
Colorful didn’t reveal any pricing or availability at this time, but I’m sure they’ll follow up with that shortly.
