Where performance is concerned, the ASUS ENGTS450 DirectCU TOP is definitely no slouch. As our benchmarks show, it was a match for some of the quickest GeForce GTS 450 cards we’ve tested, which was just as we had anticipated seeing that they all...

When NVIDIA released the Geforce GTS 450 there were already a lot of factory overclocked models announced from different launch partners, the Asus Geforce GTS 450 DirectCU TOP version comes with a GPU overclock that's the absolute minimum to get the...

You must be thinking all these great features must come at a steep price. Also, Asus hasn't had a very good track record when it comes to pricing. But like I said before, this time the crazy fog has lifted, as they've priced it at an MRP of Rs....

This nVidia GeForce GTS450 is factory-overclocked and well-cooled, making for a decent mid-range graphics card. Has nVidia re-learnt the art of providing a sufficiently good mainstream card and returned to the segment in force? Deposing the...

Filling up product range gaps used to be NVIDIA’s specialty. Almost as a rule, as soon as the strongest models from a new generation have surfaced on the market, users with pockets more shallow were offered a solution characterised by an excellent...

The ASUS ENGTS450 DirectCU TOP performed admirably in all of the benchmarks we threw at it. In most tests, it managed to pull ahead of the more expensive HD5770 and held its own against the comparably-clocked EVGA GTS 450 FTW. As I pointed out...

On its own, the gains from overclocking a GTS 450 - especially the extremely overclockable Asus Top card - are quite impressive. The standard overclock of the Asus Top makes it quite a bit faster than a standard GTS 450, and the extra frequency that...

What ASUS has done with the ENGTS450 DirectCU TOP graphics card is take the reference design of the GTS 450 and improved upon it in just about every way possible. The most noticeable improvement to the ENGTS450 TOP model has got to be the 18% factory...

Nvidia really made a splash with the GeForce GTX 460 not long ago, and it seems they've continued that trend here with the GTS 450 in the mainstream market segment. Nvidia has stated the target competition is the Radeon 5750 and from what we've...

The GTS 450 is the latest in Nvidia's burgeoning DX11 graphics stable. Coming hot on the heels of the superlative GTX 460 this new card has got a lot to live up to. And a lot of competition in AMD's HD 5770 too...Nvidia has a history of making...

Stock models of the GTS 450 are set to launch at £110, with overclocked cards costing upwards of £135. This pitches the GTS 450 against the HD 5770 and while there’s very little between the two, at stock speeds the HD 5770 was slightly...

NVIDIA's new GeForce GTS 450 is a solid implementation of the Fermi architecture for the lower midrange segment. The cards have enough power to play the latest titles at resolutions up to, including 1680x1050. Older games will run just fine at...

After testing six different GTS 450 cards (the rest of the reviews will be up shortly), we can say without a doubt that ASUS’ TOP DirectCU edition stands out from the competition. It still carries some of the not-so-perfect performance deficiencies...

ASUS GeForce GTS 450 TOP har været en blandet fornøjelse at teste. Vi er imponerende over de lave temperaturer og støjniveauet, mens ydelsen er lavere end forventet. Det er ved at være et års tid siden, at ATI lancerede deres...
