HIS Radeon HD 5450 Silence PCIe 1x/16x Review

Rating: 7.0.

The AMD HD5450 has proven to be a popular card with the enthusiast HTPC audience, due to the low pricing and media acceleration capabilities. This particular series has also been adopted by the business audience who value a low cost strategy with support for multiple monitors.

The HIS HD5450 Silence card that we are reviewing today is slightly different than the mainstream HD5450 model as it also offers an upgrade option for the audience who only have a PCIe 1x slot motherboard. With support for both PCIe 1x/16x slots it will be compatible with a huge cross section of systems.

HIS are targeting machines such as the E310, Optiplex 745, Optiplex GX520, PowerEdge SC1430, SFF desktop dc series, Dimension 3100 and PowerEdge Server T110.

The inclusion of a GTX 1060 might make the Surface Book 2 a capable laptop for games, but it's power supply seems to hamper that.

    Thats a great idea, it should help people out with even AGP systems! bit expensive, but im sure the manufacturing costs are higher. its put me in the mood now to build a media center with the cheaper version of the card

  • Trev

    Power consumption figures are staggering. its the GTX580 but the complete opposite !

  • Manny Johston

    Nice little board, id probably opt for something with a little more guts though, like hte passive HD5670 from sapphire.

  • Tri Color

    Excellent, video support is always strong on these boards, ideal for a low powered media center

    I ordered the 42 quid version on OCUK for my media center was looking for something like this and the IQ is great.
