NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTS 450 sales 13 September 2010 at a recommended price of 129 USD. This is a Fermi architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 57.7 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 8.25" (210 mm) (21 cm). An additional 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 106 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 6.91 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA TITAN Xp.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on video card compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus - if the video card is inserted into the slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
