AMD Radeon HD 6450
The HD 6450 comes in right at the bottom of AMD’s new graphics card range. It’s a tiny card which is only just longer than the PCI Express x16 slot it fits in, and doesn’t even require any auxiliary power – drawing everything it needs from the slot itself.
It’s also half-height and fairly quiet, so will be a good card for a slim media centre PC. In fact, AMD is pitching the combination of an HD 6450 and an AMD processor as an alternative to relying on the graphics chipset in an Intel Sandy Bridge processor – the company claims an AMD CPU and a Radeon HD 6450 graphics card is a cheaper and more powerful combination.
