hmmm lets go back to the 5770 launch...4870 with dx11 the thing was the best thing since sliced bread to some.
now comes the 450gts right on the 5770 heels in performance on launch day drivers(betas) give it a few weeks the nv bread and butter card will be faster and cheaper then the 5770.
so stfu

Now we know why Nvidia dropped the price of the 460 768m...

It´s clear from this review that the 450 isn´t good enough to compete with the 5770, so they had to lower the price of the 460 768m to compete with the 5770.

I´m a little disappointed as i was expecting a bigger punch from the 450.

The 460 continues to be the best car from Nvidia by far...

Great review as always!

@Hilbert....what about the memory/vrm heatsinks? I really don't hope guru3d receives the vanilla samples again and the retailers are stuck with cards without the heatsinks. At least Palit confirmed the retailers receive the same cards.

EDIT: what about Gainward? Didn't you receive the GTS450 GLH from them?

Exactly GTS450 is same price as HD 5750 so that isnt so bad thing.

GTX460 768 is little bit more expensive than HD 5770 tho...

Everyone keeps bitching that the GTS 450 is just as good as the 5770. But what most don't realize is there is a lot of gamers that won't touch ATi cards (I am one of them) so it dosen't matter if ATi had the card out first. Nivida does now and that is what matters! The last ATi card I owned was an ATI Rage...

A first glimpse of the Gainward GTS450 GS GLH:

http://www.fudzilla.com/reviews/revi...-first-glimpse

http://www.tweaktown.com/pressreleas...ell/index.html

It looks like there is a difference in cooling solutions between the GS and the GS-GLH
BCBG (best cooling by gainward)-cooling versus dual copper-water-based heatpipes.
I think the cooling is identical, but only given another name. If I look it up on the Gainward website, both types show this cooling.

The thing is the price will come down on the 450.they could not make it faster it would be too close to the 460 which cuts into 470 sales as it is.

99-120GBP as of release today.

In the reviews you say the highest clocked card is 930MHz, but that card in all uk stores is labelled 920MHz.

The Palit GTS 450 Sonic Platinum is 920MHz not 930, i find that a lil strange.

http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforc...iew-roundup/11

Maybe they sent one with 930 just to get better results in the tests

http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/1GB-P...192-Cores-HDMI

They told you it was a final retail product, then they pulled 10MHz off it for the real retailer.

I hope you have experienced something bad/unacceptable with some friends' Ati cards or something similar during the latest generations, because fanboyism towards a brand is just plain pointless otherwise.

if he wants to pay $999999 for a GTS 450 just to donate money to nvidia, i would not care one bit. but to declare such level of fanboyism in a forum and to try to justify those statements are just. fail.

yup heres to better dx11 performance for ati the second time around

anyways as said we all know that the 450 and 5770 is for low mid range.
so most dont really give a flying poo(no reason to bash the card).

poparamiro did some air overclocking + volt mods looks like he had fun
1130/1200 air with mods

the card is having very low results compared to a lot of models like in this review : http://www.anandtech.com/show/3909/n...e-mainstream/1 .
it should be good for being a physx dedicated or in a pc that is for 2D but not for gaming or may be old games like hl2 & css .
i have no idea why guru3d recommend this product , at 120-130 $ that should be even possible to find a motherboard with a graphic in the chipset . i wonder how would be the scores of such a gfx compared to the 450

edit : i rethink of that card and my idea is it should be good in a HTPC box if the card would be in Low-profile format like most tv cards .
some would like the HDMI and bitstream that should give .

Nothing wrong with brand loyalty. Matter of fact you will never see me driving a ford either...

I don't buy anything other then Asus Nvidia cards, before that I only bought 3dfx cards. Switching brands and compays is not smart in my books. You stick with the brand that never gives you any problems!
