How well can the GeForce GTS 450 v3 run games
14 Oct 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

This GeForce GTS 450 v3 graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements. GeForce GTS 450 v3 is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

How many years will the GeForce GTS 450 v3 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTS 450 v3 in your PC? You should definitely consider replacing this GeForce GTS 450 v3 graphics card, if it is still in your gaming PC.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTS 450 v3? Are you looking to upgrade a GeForce GTS 450 v3? Then we would suggest getting a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB, as it can run 825 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 605% increased graphics performance. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the R-500 Series Radeon RX 580 8GB which is 475% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 758 games from the most demanding games today.

GeForce GTS 450 v3 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTS 450 v3 is a fast-middle-class Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Fermi Architecture.


Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF116-200-KA-A1 which has 4 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 192 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 783MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 902MHz.


Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies.


Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 106W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and an available 6-pin connector.


Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance considerably above Radeon HD 6670.


System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i3) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTS 450 v3.
