Benchmarks: Company of Heroes, Crysis Warhead
Despite of having the Radeon HD 5450 easily outscoring the older HD 4350 in 3Dmark Vantage, this has not translated into better real-world performance, at least not with Company of Heroes. Here the Radeon HD 5450 delivered virtually the same lackluster experience as the Radeon HD 4350, making it 50% slower than the Radeon HD 4650 and GeForce GT 220 graphics cards.
Crysis Warhead confirms the results we found when testing with Company of Heroes. This game also shows very similar performance between the old Radeon HD 4350 and the new Radeon HD 5450. The Radeon HD 5450 was 38% slower than the Radeon HD 4650 at 1440x900 and 62% slower than the GeForce GT 220.
