How low can you go?
When you want multiple models of the same card, it's hard to go wrong with EVGA. In February, the company revealed the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980Ti VR edition, bringing the monster card to a total of 13 different SKUs. Today, EVGA announced the addition of not one, not two, but eight new GTX 950 models to bring the total number of SKUs for the most recent budget card to 13. Unlike the 980Ti VR, the new 950 models have a different gimmick than just a front HDMI port to connect a 5.25" bay. All eight of these new models use less power than you'd expect from the GTX 950.
While we're waiting for 2016's Pascal cards, EVGA is keeping busy by optimizing their existing products. Half of these cards still use a 6-pin power connector from the power supply, but still draw less than your standard GTX 950. The other four models are truly low power, able to draw all the power they need to function from the PCIe slot on your motherboard. The PCIe only cards offer slightly worse performance than the 6-pin low power models as expected, but gamers looking for a budget card without having any extra 6-pin connectors to spare on their power supply have an extra option.
Six of the eight cards are available to purchase directly from EVGA now. The 02G-P4-0952 and 02G-P4-0954 models are listed as coming soon, which are both cards that only require an open PCIe slot. The new cards range from $140 to $150, keeping in line with the rest of the GTX 950 lineup from both EVGA and their competitors.
