On a computer this old, I am not exactly looking for serious gaming performance. Anything out there is a few generations ahead of what I had, so relative power is not the key question. Instead, my main concerns were:
(1) Will it actually fit in my small case?
(2) Will it actually work once I get it in there?
As for making it fit, this card is "Low profile ready". What that means is it won't fit a small computer case when it comes out of the box, but they give you the pieces you need to make it fit. Basically the little metal plate at the back of the card where you plug the card into the monitor cable is too long, but they give you two shorter plates that you can swap out for the big one.
One short connector plate is for the newer, digital connectors (DVI & HDMI) and the second is for the more basic, VGA connector. You can actually have all three connectors available, even when the card is installed in a small computer, just as long as there are two open slots on the back of the case next to each other. The cable that connects the VGA out to the card is long enough that you can reach the second opening in the back of the case. I happened to have that space available on my computer and so I set it up that way. All you need to swap out the back plates is a small diameter Phillips head screwdriver and some needle-nose pliers for the little bolts that hold it to the card.Read more ›
Pros: Price (a bit less than other budget cards)
Fanless design (the heatsink seems like actually solid aluminum and the card felt heavy)
Very low power consumption (something like 9 watts idle, 27 watts peak, 50% less than many "gaming" type cards)
Unquestionably better than integrated Intel graphics!!! [update :at least older Intel graphics, circa 2009-2012)]
Cons: 64 bit interface (a bit of a downgrade for me and a surprising disappointment for 2012. I expected at least 128 bit)
Anti-aliasing hardware limited to 4x
3d Mark 2006 gave the 3 year old 9500GT a combined score of _4428_, vs the Radeon 6450's score of _3241_ (and CPU sub-scores were about 20 pts better on the Radeon test).
In game performance seems to contrary, a significant improvement with the 6450. This worked fine for playing Oblivion and Skyrim, games that are graphics optimized and CPU-bound to some degree. Contrary to popular belief, you don't "need" a gaming midrange (6770, 7770, which I used for a year) or high midrange (7870, my current 2014 card) to play games. Most games these days "Scale" to the appropriate graphics settings for your system, and the ones that heavily GPU dependent (Metro 2033 / Last Light comes to mind), those games will have some slowdowns no matter what you throw at them.
Idle temps of ~42°C, relatively stable load temps in the area of 58-60 °C, with long term peaks around 65-67°C (after a few hours of games loaded).Read more ›
I'll be blunt, the HD 6450 is not designed for playing the latest games. I'm hesitant to try older games with it, but it is a significant improvement over Intel's integrated HD2000 and HD3000 graphics in its Sandybridge processors. Intel's HD2000/HD3000 have serious issues with certain movie formats and overscanning with LCD TV's using the HDMI port. I cannot watch MotoGP.com videos in 720P with the HD2000 or HD3000 due to artifacts on the lower half of the screen. I read that 23.97 frame rate movies cannot be played either.
So for a HTPC build, or for a general-use build, this is where the HD 6450 shines! It sips energy, so you can run it with a 300W PSU. There's no fan, just a large heatsink so it runs silent. It doesn't get hot and doesn't use much power, and is DirectX 11 compatible. I ran 3DMark11 and got a low 501 score with a Core i3-2120 processor, so it is not setting any records. But it is reliable and runs cold.
Using Windows 7's built-in experience index, it went from 5.1 desktop aero graphics using my Intel HD2000, to a 4.5 with the HD 6450. I feel this is a misleading index anyhow. The gaming index with the 6450 Is 6.1, but it isn't that fast for 3D gaming.
The 6450 works straight out of the box with LCD TV's without any overscan issues. The HDMI audio is a bit low in volume, I have to turn it up to 100 just to get decent sound out of my TV.
Overall: 5/5 stars, does the work just fine for a HTPC build or for the office. It is silent, it runs cold, and it doesn't use a lot of power. So far it seems to run rock steady reliable as well. Just don't plan to play the latest 3D games.
