4 out of 5 eggs HD vid looks great. 07/20/2013

This review is from: Visiontek Radeon 5450 1GB DDR3 (DVI-I, HDMI, VGA)

Pros:

Didn't cost much and works out of the box. HD video content looks great. No install and/or driver issues at all.

Cons:

Loses one egg based on value.

Other Thoughts:

The HD 5450 was well thought of a couple years ago as a great HTPC GPU for the price. Needed a card for that purpose for a new board with no onboard graphics and this one popped up near the top in search of PCIE 2.0 x 16, based on price. After purchase I noticed some higher end AMD GPU's for the same or few bucks less when searching 2.1 x 16. Not a gamer so it won't make a difference for my purpose but it would have been a no-brainer to upgrade at the same price or less. The fault is mine for not noticing, but it deserves an egg knocked off for value. Never understood why most cards end up heat sink down, it get's hot but not expecting any problems. This replaced onboard HD 4250 w/sideport mem. on a different board. Win experience index took a 0.5 point hit, from 4.6 down to 4.1, for desktop/Aero graphics. But, a 0.5 point gain, from 4.9 to 5.4, for 3D and Gaming. Read this in other reviews so not unexpected. Regardless, I think HD video actually looks a bit cleaner and sharper comparing both GPU's without enhancements. Maybe that Windows rating is just bunk. Good card for HD, not expensive and no problems with install or function so far.
