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.
