ATI Radeon HD 3450 Reviewed

Expreview has the exclusive benchmarks of ATI Radeon HD 3450 128MB.This card will replace the Radeon HD 2400 and is well suited for HTPC systems.

AMD did a very good job in entry/HTPC VGA card segment. Comparing to NVIDIA-ruled mid to High-end market, AMD sells quite well in entry/HTPC market. That’s because the company catch the trend, focus on product’s HD video playback ability. The RV610, HD 2400 becomes many HTPC fans’ first choice. After RV670’s debuting, AMD turn their process tech to 55nm, and preparing to roll out more HD 3000 series cards based on RV6XX GPU and 55nm process.

In 3DMark test Radeon HD 3450 have about 26.73% boost compare to HD 2400 Pro with default frequency.That’s because the higher clock. When we OC Hd 2400 Pro to the same frequency, the performance boost drop to 6.3%. This means the 55nm shrink only brings little boost to the performance.This card is certainly not for exclusive gaming,even though it has 33.3% faster clock than HD 2400 Pro, we have to turn all setting off, and lower the resolution to play today’s new game.
