The ATI Radeon HD 5450 Graphics is the lowest on the 5000
series of cards from ATI lineup and boasts of the ATI Eyefinity technology. With
this technology the user can connect up to 3 three monitors and merge them as
one big screen. The specialty of this card is that it consumes less than 20W of
power under full load and is ideal for HTPCs. It is surprisingly small and is
cooled by a small, quiet fan . The card stayed at a temperature of 40 degrees on
idle and went up to a maximum at 60 degrees on loads. You get three output ports
at the back: VGA, DVI and HDMI.The one we received came with 1GB GDDR5 dedicated
memory that is enough to handle HD content easily. We ran our standard
benchmarks on the card for performance evaluation. It was tested with an AMD
Phenom II 955 processor on a MSI 790FX GD70 motherboard with 4 GB of DDR3 RAM
running Windows 7 Ultimate. It scored 3322 on 3DMark06, 1155 on 3D Mark Vantage
with 968 as the GPU Score. In PCMark 05, the card scored 4243 marks in graphics.
For games we ran Far Cry 2 and Devil May Cry 4 on which we had an average frame
rate of 12.37 and 25.09 respectively with 1280 x 1024 resolution & ultra high
settings.

Bottomline: This card is meant more for entry-level
games such as Counter Strike or MMORPG games that do not require a high-end
graphics card. Although you can play full HD files comfortably.
