Palit GeForce GTS 450 Sonic Platinum 1GB
We’ve recently seen the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 to be a formidable card, providing excellent performance and value in the $200 segment. But for gamers on a more modest budget, Nvidia has released their latest card in the Fermi lineup, the GeForce GTS 450. It’s priced very aggressively at about $129 for the reference model, and Nvidia hopes to build upon its success of the GTX 460.
Perhaps you’re an Nvidia fanboy, perhaps you’re attracted by its PhysX capabilities, or maybe you want impressive Folding@Home capabilities; whatever the reason, if you’re a gamer on a modest budget, then this product launch will strike a chord. The Palit GeForce GTS 450 Sonic Platinum 1GB is one such partner card, setting its sights directly on the Radeon 5750 as competition in terms of performance and price. And from what we’ve seen, Nvidia looks ready to stick it to ATI with this new card in the mainstream market segment, and Palit may be well positioned to capitalize on the resurgence.
This card brings a very aggressive overclock and a custom heatsink to the table, two very attractive features that separates it from the rest of the pack. Factor in a very competitive price and we may have the new must-have card for gamers on a modest budget.
Let’s take a closer look at the Palit GTS 450 Sonic Platinum and see how it fares.
