SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5450 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card ( 100292DDR3L)

2 out of 5 eggs Performance drop from Radeon HD 4650 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 06/10/2014

This review is from: SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5450 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card ( 100292DDR3L)

Pros: Fan-less low profile card that worked fine in my system.

Cons: I purchased this low-profile card in an attempt to improve the performance of my Acer Aspire. I previously had purchased a SAPPHIRE 100253HDMI Radeon HD 4650 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 from NewEgg (now out of stock) to improve over the performance of the integrated Intel graphics (which it did).

I wanted a fan-less card, and I thought that upgrading to a HD 5450 with 1GB DDR3 would be an improvement. However, the opposite is true: performance actually dropped after installing the new card. My Windows Experience Index went from 5.0 to 4.5 in "Graphics" and from 6.4 to 6.1 in "Gaming graphics".

Other Thoughts: I guess the difference between 128-bit GDDR2 and 1GB DDR accounts for the performance drop. I'm disappointed; I feel like I wasted $40 on this new card. I've reinstalled the old card.

5 out of 5 eggs Works with Windows 7 64-bit 01/13/2010

This review is from: M-AUDIO Uno 1-In-1-Out USB Bus-Powered MIDI Interface

Pros: The packaging and website did not indicate driver support for Windows Vista/7 64-bit (and the included CD would not install on my Windows 64-bit system). So I simply plugged it in to a USB port and -- viola -- Windows 7 recognized the device and installed a working driver. It works perfectly with my Roland PC200 MK II keyboard controller.

Cons: I haven't used it enough to confirm any latency issues, but so far so good.

SAPPHIRE 100253HDMI Radeon HD 4650 512MB 128-Bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - Fit in x1800 case with minimum of effort.
- Fan is quiet so far.
- Able to use it on 220w PS of Acer Aspire x1800.
- Works with Windows 7 64-bit.
- Increased my Windows Experience index from 3.3 to 5 (6+ for gaming)

Cons: - Tight fit in x1800. The fan only has a centimetre clearance from the ceiling of the case.

Other Thoughts: I researched this card a lot before purchasing it (mainly through newegg.ca). I haven't really stressed the card yet though, so I'm not sure about overheating or whether the 220w PS will be sufficient.
