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

To test power consumption today we are using a Keithley Integra unit and we measure power consumption from the VGA card inputs, not the system wide drain. The best way to get maximum load results is by using Furmark, and even though it is not indicative of a real world situation it shows the limits the card can theoretically demand. The ‘gaming’ results are measured when playing Crysis Warhead and is a more valuable result to take from this.

An incredible set of results, with the card taking 13 watts under Furmark load, this is actually less than many performance cards require at idle!
