How well can the GeForce GTS 450 run games
4 Jul 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

This GeForce GTS 450 graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

How many years will the GeForce GTS 450 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTS 450 in your PC? Its upgrade time for the GeForce GTS 450, assuming you are a modern day gamer.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTS 450? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 605% better and can meet 852 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 XT 4GB which is 476% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 797 games from the most demanding games today.

GeForce GTS 450 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTS 450 is a fast-middle-class Graphics Card based on the first 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 GF106-250-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.
