Review: The first sub €50 DirectX 11 card











Radeon HD 5450 is aimed at those who don’t use demanding 3D apps or hard core gaming but make no mistake - performance wise it’s better than integrated graphics. Of course, you can play games as long as you turn the effects of and set detail settings at minimum. To prove our point, we tried playing Dirt 2 with these settings, and while it is possible, note that there’ll be no people on the stands, no team in pit-stop section, no mud and dust under the wheels and in general the gaming is surely not like it was intended to be. On the other hand, if you don’t care for these details, then you’ve got nothing to worry about, the card’s got you covered.

In HD 5450’s price range we had only the GT220, but the better model with 1GB of memory. The difference between the HD 5450 and GT220 1GB is obvious so we don’t have to comment much. The important thing is that gaming is possible, but you’ll have to use bare minimums in settings. Every game except for Dirt2 ran in DirectX 9 mode.
