AMD Radeon HD 6450: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon HD 6450


AMD started Radeon HD 6450 sales 7 April 2011 at a recommended price of 55 USD. This is TeraScale 2 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1024 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 800 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 25.6 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 168 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 30 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 1.59 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
