AMD Radeon HD 6450A: specs and benchmarks
- Interface MXM-A (3.0)
- Core clock speed 625 MHz
- Max video memory 512 MB
- Memory type DDR3
- Memory clock speed 1066 MHz
- Maximum resolution
AMD started Radeon HD 6450A sales 7 April 2011. This is a TeraScale 2 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 512 MB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1.07 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 8.528 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-A (3.0) interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 25 Watt.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at
of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.

Synthetic benchmark performance of Radeon HD 6450A. Overall performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
