The GTX 950 model that I've been testing out this week is the EVGA GeForce GTX 950 FTW (02G-P4-2958). Compared to the base clock of 1024MHz and boost of 1188MHz, the FTW is eVGA's highest-clocked GTX 950. The GTX 950 has a base clock of 1203Mhz and a boost of 1405MHz! That's a 17% rise on the base clock and 18% on the boost clock. It's quite the factory-overclock while complementing the FTW will be the SSC, SC+, and SC models with lower clock-speeds.

Due to the overclock, the GeForce GTX 950 FTW uses a dual-can ACX 2.0 cooler while the more basic GTX 950 models have a single fan. As mentioned on the first page, it's up to the AIB and their GTX 950 configuration whether a six or eight-pin power connector is used. With this FTW graphics card, there is the 8-pin power connector.

All of the GeForce GTX 950 graphics cards are equipped with 2GB of GDDR5 video memory.

The EVGA GeForce GTX 950 FTW is equipped with three DisplayPort connections as well as HDMI and DVI-I. From NVIDIA's AIBs you'll see a few different output connector varieties as usual.
