AMD's Radeon HD 6450 Reference Card
The half-height reference Radeon HD 6450 PCB isn’t very intimidating at about 6 ½ inches long and roughly 2 ½ inches tall.
While the board is unique, it looks very similar to the half-height Radeon HD 5770 reference card and matching cooler. Since the GPU is far less complex, we don’t think the plucky little fan will have to work very hard to keep the Radeon HD 6450’s temperature sufficiently low.
The reference card has DVI-D, DisplayPort, and VGA outputs. The DVI output can work with a DVI-to-HDMI converter for 3D display over HDMI 1.4a.
Anyway, I would argue that gaming performance definitely isn't at the top of peoples priority list when purchasing a card in this price range. People tend to purchase $60 cards for low power, cool, and quiet media PC operation. And at least in this category the HD6450 offers solid competition for the GT430.
Still waiting on the French dev team to let me know when it's going to unbreak that feature that previously worked fine ;-)
Maybe you should try not making baseless assumptions. Nvidia's graphics cards are overpriced and weaker than AMD's at just about every possible price point. The GTX 550 Ti is a failure, and as you pointed out yourself, even this new AMD HTPC offering offers solid competition for the GT430.
It was totally ridiculous for tomshardware to post the "Best Graphics Card for the Money" article the day before the AMD 6990 article, (to exclude AMD's new flag ship card) and then even more ridiculous to title the article "AMD Radeon HD 6990 4 GB Review: Antilles Makes (Too Much) Noise." This site obviously favors Nvidia and is paid well to do so, I'm just leveling the playing field a bit.
Also, don't use "lol" and limit your "..." usage, it makes you look bad.
