AMD HD6450 Review

Review Score:
2 Flares 2 Flares ×

Many readers looking at this review today will already have a performance gaming system and others will be contemplating a second system, hooked into a new high definition television for light gaming and media demands. To specifically target this sector AMD are releasing a very low cost Direct X 11 solution – the HD6450. This not only will cover media and light gaming duties, but can actually be used for multiple screen gaming.

The AMD HD6450 is, as expected, a tiny little low profile design, ideal for small media oriented chassis and confined spaces. At a estimated retail price of around $55 it should make for a smart, low cost option to improve upon onboard graphics solutions. Many people are beginning to realise that to get the highest image quality on a big screen, discrete is often the way to go.

    Seems like a very decent card for the money. Not my cup of tea, but for media duties, very nice indeed.

    If they clock this to 625mhz it will not relate to these scores unfortunateyl, thats a significant core clock drop.

    Not a very exciting product, but the fact you can game on more than one screen, even if the IQ would be rubbish is a very cool idea. Great idea for a second system but I cant see this being used as a gaming card, more for media.

    In that area it does very well indeed.

    Sales in this market are much larger than the high end but there is very little money to be made here by AMD or their partners, maybe $10 a card profit.

    This is a nice update, but passive would be more appealing to me than a fan.

    The HD6450 seems like a nice HTPC card, if not a tad expensive.

    Also, it’s nice to see a tech review site that actually makes an effort to make sure that their graphs are clear to read, so people can actually quickly make sense of the data (the whole point in a graph). Keep up the good work.
