AMD Radeon R7 450
The Radeon R7 450 is an AMD GPU that was released in June 2016. This GPU is bad at gaming with a score of 3% in our PC benchmark.
The Radeon R7 450 has 2 GiB of GDDR5 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 70 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 128 bits. If you plan on gaming at higher resolutions with higher quality textures, more memory is important. Without enough memory, performance will be degraded.
In terms of clock speed, the Radeon R7 450 GPU core runs at a frequency of 1050 MHz. The core clock is directly related to the performance of a GPU, the higher the clock, the more processing can be done per second. A higher clock does not guarantee better performance by itself, this also depends on the number of shading units and other elements of the pipeline.
As for rendering API support, the Radeon R7 450 supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.3 features are supported. If your GPU is too old and doesn't support a newer API certain titles may not be playable.
The AMD Radeon R7 450 has a TDP of 65W, this is the amount of heat energy produced by the chip as a byproduct. The higher the TDP, the more heat is produced.
