The video RAM (VRAM) in the Macintosh Quadra 950  uses 80 ns devices instead of the 100 ns devices used in the [[Macintosh Quadra 900]]. The video controller (DAFB) has been reprogrammed to take advantage of the faster VRAM, speeding up video performance by as much as 20%. That speed increase is in addition to the increase due to the 33 MHz processor speed. The cumulative increase in video performance can be as much as 50% overall.
