How well can the GeForce GTS 450 v4 run games
2 Aug 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTS 450 v4 is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements. GeForce GTS 450 v4 is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

How many years will the GeForce GTS 450 v4 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTS 450 v4 in your PC? You should definitely consider replacing this GeForce GTS 450 v4 graphics card, if it is still in your gaming PC.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTS 450 v4? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB, which has 840% better performance and can run 852 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the R-500 Series Radeon RX 580 8GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 667% better and can meet 789 of their recommended requirements.

GeForce GTS 450 v4 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTS 450 v4 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 GF116-250-KA-A1 which has 3 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 144 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 783MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 700MHz.


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 around Radeon HD 6570 meaning Radeon HD 6670 is still faster.


System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i3) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTS 450 v4.
