September 13, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

NVIDIA has announced the NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450, its latest addition to its Fermi-class of GPUs. The company reckons the card packs 2.4x the geometry processing performance over its predecessor, along with DirectX11 support.

The GeForce GTS 450, which brings improved performance to a very affordable price point, comes with a price tag of $129. This comes at a time when the market is occupied by ATI’s HD 5750. NVIDIA claims that the GTS 450 1GB is up to 65 percent faster than AMD’s ATI Radeon HD 5750 1GB.

With 783MHz graphics and 1566MHz processor clock speeds, the GTS 450 also comes with full support for NVIDIA 3D Vision technology. GTS 450 will provide the graphics horsepower and video bandwidth needed to experience games and high definition Blu-ray movies in stereoscopic 3D.

The GTS 450 has 1GB of 900MHz (3.6 GHz effective) GDDR5 memory, which is governed by a 128-bit memory controller and 16 ROPs. The GPU is designed to excel at resolutions between 1600×1050 and 1280×1024. These are resolutions at which most of the gamers prefer to play their games.

GTS 450 cards should all be dual-slot affairs which require one 6-pin power connection. The GTS 450 will be a terrific GPU for playing this year’s latest games. ASL, ASUS, Colorful, ECS, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, Jetway, KFA2, Leadtek, MSI, Palit, Point of View, PNY, Sparcle and Zotac are all launching GeForce GTS cards.
