Review: More for less



As you can see from the picture, EVGA GTS 450 FBS (Part Number: 01G-P3-1450-ET) comes with dual slot cooling. It’s the reference solution used by many partners on their GTS 450 cards, and the decision to keep reference cooling is quite expected as the cooler is not only efficient – it’s also pretty quiet.

EVGA GTS 450 FBS comes with 1GB of Samsung’s K4G10325FE-HC05 GDDR5 memory, equally distributed across both sides of the card.

Most GTS 450 cards, including our today’s sample, come with two dual-link DVI and one mini-HDMI connector, although partners are free to express themselves in this respect.

The card comes with one SLI connector allowing for 2-way SLI. This means that you can only add one more GTS 450 if you happen to decide on upgrading your graphics at a later date.

The card is powered via one 6-pin power connector with the card’s TDP totaling at 106W.
