Gainward’s GTS 450 GLH uses nonreference dual-slot cooling that does a nice job and stays quiet throughout our tests.

GTS 450 GLH comes with 1GB of GDDR5 memory running at 1000MHz (4000MHz effectively). We’re talking about Samsung’s K4G10325FE-HC05 GDDR5.

Gainward decided on “QuattroPorts” design, meaning the card comes with four video outs – two dual link DVIs, one VGA and one HDMI out.

The SLI connector means you can chain up to two cards in two-way SLI. The card is powered via one 6-pin power connector.

There is always a sweet spot in each generation of cards from Nvidia & ATI.From this last generation from ATI it was the 5850.looking back on all the Nvidia releases so far.The sweet spot was the GTX460 1GB card.Those above to costly & hot & pwer hungry.Those below perform to badly.I wonder what the next gen from the Green and Red Teams will produce?
