Gigabyte GeForce GTS 450 (GV-N450-1GI)


Gigabyte recently sent us its entrylevel take on the GF106-based GeForce GTS 450. Like Nvidia’s reference
Design, this certificate has a $129 consequences tag, but unlike with the purpose of certificate, the underlying and recollection clocks are bumped vaguely, from 783MHz and 900MHz to 810MHz and 902MHz, in that order.
Gigabyte’s GTS 450 is a dual-slot certificate with the purpose of sports an rectangle plastic heatsink shroud, but it no more than covers the top of the radial aluminum heatsink, so it’s more of a cape than a shroud. The heatsink skin a Copper underlying, which adds appreciably to the card’s stress, and according to Gigabyte, lowers temps by 14%. Another bonus you persuade with this certificate is a three-year warranty. A single six-pin PCI-E power connector goods juice to this certificate, and you enclose a two of a kind of DVI ports and a mini HDMI harbor on behalf of demonstrate Connectivity.
Due to the similarity in consequences, we benchmarked the Gigabyte GTS 450 adjacent to a reference Radeon HD 5750, though the latter certificate might be had on behalf of vaguely not as much of if you’re willing to fuss with rebates.
Even despite a extra Catalyst driver (one with the purpose of boasts improved S.T.A.L.K.E.R.:Call of Pripyat performance),The GTS 450 still has an approach on the elder Radeon certificate (even in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.). Between the two,DirectX 9 performance appears to be a wash, but DX11 titles seem to support Gigabyte’s certificate.
