AMD Radeon HD 7450
The Radeon HD 7450 is a GPU from AMD. This chip has a bad gaming score at 0% in our GPU benchmark.
The Radeon HD 7450 has 1 GiB of memory. More memory is beneficial when gaming at high resolutions as the memory needs to store the frame buffer and all the game textures. If you run out of memory, you will experience poor performance as the GPU needs to swap data in and out of the memory as it is used.
As for rendering API support, the Radeon HD 7450 supports up to DirectX 11. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.4 features are supported. Newer APIs are usually more efficient, allowing for better performance in games and better graphical effects.
Power and thermals for the AMD Radeon HD 7450 are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 18 watts. This measures the amount of heat the GPU produces when running at 100%. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's a good estimate.
