  1. Not long after launching the Radeon HD 6790 for the mainstream market, AMD is ready with a new offering, this time aimed at users looking to upgrade from integrated graphics solutions or build a HTPC with a sub-$60 card. The new Radeon HD 6450 shares many of the same features as its higher-end counterparts in the Radeon HD 6000 family, but the 'Caicos' GPU used on this card is pared down significantly to reduce cost and power requirements.

    @Jose
    Just a little addition, the article you linked at Techreport, clearly implies in the conclusions that 'it probably isn't worth upgrading' for anyone with Sandybridge CPU, as it doesn't offer any 'significant' advantage; anyway I think this little noisy card will probably end up mostly in HTPCs (probably the main purpose of its existence anyway).
