This model is quiet, runs cool and has a very low power drain. However, the reviewer warns that the performance of retail models may be significantly worse, as some AMD partners will clock their models at 625MHz instead of the 750MHz review samples that were send out.
"Many readers looking at this review today will already have a performance gaming system and others will be contemplating a second system, hooked into a new high definition television for light gaming and media demands. To specifically target this sector AMD are releasing a very low cost Direct X 11 solution – the HD6450. This not only will cover media and light gaming duties, but can actually be used for multiple screen gaming."
