ZOTAC GeForce GTX 950 AMP! Edition Video Card Review

The Packaging


ZOTAC usually has some decent packaging on its video cards, with the mid-range GTX 950 AMP! Edition being no different.




Starting with the front of the box, we have a mostly plain package. We can see that there's 2GB of GDDR5 on the card, ZOTAC's ExoArmor, Freeze Tech and Ice Storm technologies. On the bottom right, we have NVIDIA's various technologies too.




On the back, we have a detailed run down of the various parts of the card, including ZOTAC's FireStorm overclocking software.





Inside, the card is in another box to keep it safe.



Detailed Look




Here we have the front of the card, which looks identical to any of ZOTAC's AMP! range. We have two large fans, and an elaborate heat pipe array behind the fans that you can spot.




Interestingly, ZOTAC opted to use a backplate on the card - but it does also look very cool, too.




We have a change of display connectivity from previous Maxwell offerings, with 1 x DisplayPort, 1 x HDMI 2.0 and 2 x DVI ports.




The ZOTAC GeForce GTX 950 AMP! Edition is powered by a single 6-pin PCIe power connector, with a TDP of just 95W.




I don't know why you'd want to, but you can SLI the GTX 950 if you wanted to. Only 2-way SLI is supported on the GTX 950.
