In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the GeForce GT 710 and the Radeon HD 6450 are equal.

The GeForce GT 710 has a 185 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the Radeon HD 6450. This results in the GeForce GT 710 providing 1.5 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce GT 710 has a 185 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 6450 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce GT 710 providing 0.7 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce GT 710 was released over three years more recently than the Radeon HD 6450, and so the GeForce GT 710 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon HD 6450 when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 710 has 512 MB more video memory than the Radeon HD 6450, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The Radeon HD 6450 has 11.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 710, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon HD 6450 is slightly better than the GeForce GT 710.

The GeForce GT 710 has 48 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 6450 has 160. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 710 is 78 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 6450 is 50. The GeForce GT 710 having 28 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon HD 6450 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GT 710 requires 30 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 6450 requires 18 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 710 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Radeon HD 6450. The GeForce GT 710 requires 12 Watts more than the Radeon HD 6450 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce GT 710 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon HD 6450.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 710 is an Entry-Level Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GF119-300-A1 which has 1 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 810MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 898MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 30W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
GeForce GT 710 is a direct rebrand of GeForce GT 620 v2.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat below Radeon HD 6450.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Pentium G) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 710.
Overview
Radeon HD 6450 is an entry-level Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Terascale Architecture.

Architecture
The Second variant of the Terascale 2 Architecture is still manufactured with a 40nm technology and despite allowing more Stream Cores, their design remains more or less the same compared to the first variant.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Caicos PRO which has 2 Compute Units activated and thus offers 160 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Operates at 625MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 512MB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 64-bit memory interface. The memory clock operates at 800MHz. The size of the frame buffer is adequate.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for HD3D, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, PowerPlay and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 18W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance only slightly below of a GeForce GT 520.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 6450.
