How well can the Radeon HD 6450 run games
10 Feb 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

Based on current gaming requirements the Radeon HD 6450 is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs. DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

How many years will the Radeon HD 6450 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon HD 6450 in your PC? Its upgrade time for the Radeon HD 6450, assuming you are a modern day gamer.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon HD 6450? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 2509% better and can run 878 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which is 1946% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 735 games from the most demanding games today.

Radeon HD 6450 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon HD 6450 is an entry-level Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Terascale Architecture.


Architecture
The Second variant of the Terascale 2 Architecture is still manufactured with a 40nm technology and despite allowing more Stream Cores, their design remains more or less the same compared to the first variant.


GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Caicos PRO which has 2 Compute Units activated and thus offers 160 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Operates at 625MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 512MB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 64-bit memory interface. The memory clock operates at 800MHz. The size of the frame buffer is adequate.


Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for HD3D, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, PowerPlay and other technologies.


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


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 18W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.


Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance only slightly below of a GeForce GT 520.


System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 6450.

don't get it, it is a weak gpu. there are a lot of better gpus than this at a good price point of 100-200 USD, I recommend the HD 6670 1GB GDDR5, it is cheap, and can run all modern games at high to max settings on at least 35 FPS

That CPU is a little weak for 7970 but you'd get better FPS than with 7870.Do you have some particular reason to go for Nvidia.AMD gives you better performance for the same money.What PSU do you have?

There is and will be blottleneck in any computer, my gpu is bottlenecked in skyrim and prototype 2 by the cpu, so that's why i said HD7770, everyone says that games will run ok with a decent cpu as much time the gpu is a beast, but it's not really like that. A balanced rig as cpu/gpu/ram is the best choice.

FX 4170 is 'four' core CPU with 10% OC is about 4.5GHz, 7850 won't be bottlenecked by it.7850 is a GREAT card for it's price.Your Athlon II x4 651K can't be a bottleneck for 7770 or even stronger cards.

probably you do not understand the meaning bottleneck.. if the gpu is too strong for the cpu, the gpu will tend to get higher and higher fps because it si capable of it, but if the cpu is not strong enough (cpu demading games) the fps will be limited by it. My HD6750, a mid-end gpu is being bottlenecked by the "high end" 651k in skyrim, as example.. i also tested it, no matter how much i increase gpu core/memory clocks the fps will remain the same .. 51- but when i overclocked the cpu by 400 mhz the fps increased to 56-, the new games aren't anymore just gpu demading, look around at some 2011 games but most of 2012 games use the both gpu and cpu alot, for a HD7850 the best cpu would be i5-2500

the stronger is the gpu, the more fps it will want to give you wich also means the cpu will have to deliver more information to it, (1 fps = information sent by cpu) more fps? more work for the cpu, but it also got a limit, when it reaches like 90% usage it won't be able to send more information(fps) than that, so the gpu will render just the available information, lesser gpu usage than it can = bottleneck. That's why it doesn't matter of the combination Amd-nvidia, intel-ati, because they work together and depend on each other anyway

Bottlenecking is not an unknown are for me.I've seen stronger GPUs on CPUs similar to yours (tested rigs).Your quad can take 7850 it's not that simple to test GPU bottleneck by just increasing GPU frequencies.Also your GPU is mid, and CPU is mid-end.Relatively weak GPU can be bottlenecked by quad core CPU like yours.

overclocking is increasing performance of the specific component (home made upgrade lol) and how a weak gpu is being bottlenecked by a strong cpu? is it you writing inaccurate or me not understanding what do you write -.-

oh it's ok :D so why are you saying overclocking won't help you to test the bottleneck? since it's like you would create new "default" clocks, a bios flash but not really a bios flash

and if in saints row 3 the fps increase by 4-7 fps and in skyrim, where i tested it didn't increased any bit? i said clearly before, that i didn't got any fps improvement from gpu overclock in skyrim, wich was the proof of my gpu being bottlenecked by the cpu

In my opinion this GFX is not that good it can only run few games. Hell i even wasted $20 on a good game.All i can say is if your looking for a GFX that can run a very awesome game like BF3, GTA 4, Metro 2033, in a very high or ultra setting, I don't recommend this GFX if you looking for those games.

I have to be honest, I own this card and it's actually not that bad.
It can run APB: Reloaded at 30FPS at max settings in 1280x768, TF2 at max settings at 1080p, Mass Effect 3 with both of the 2 options on (1280x768) at 35-40FPS…
Sure, these arn't incredible but they arn't as awful as people make them out to be. I'm able to run a lot of games- in fact I have yet to be told by ANY game that my GPU is not good enough.
