Nvidia GeForce GTS 450, GeForce GTS 450 SLI and Palit GTS 450 Sonic Platinum Review
Benchmarks: S.T.A.L.K.E.R., World in Conflict
The GeForce GTS 450 averaged 33fps at 1680x1050 making it 18% faster than the Radeon HD 5770 and just 6% slower than the Radeon HD 5830. The overclocked Palit GTS 450 Sonic Platinum was able to beat the Radeon HD 5830 as it offered a 15% fps increment.
The GeForce GTS 450 SLI was 85% faster than the single card setup and with 61fps rendered on average it was also the fastest configuration tested.
World in Conflict Benchmarks
World in Conflict has a built-in benchmark tool that works rather well so we decided to stick with that for testing this game. We used the “very high” quality preset with 4xAA/16xAF enabled.
Here the GeForce GTS 450 is able to match the performance of the Radeon HD 5770 while beating the 5750 by an 18% margin. As we have seen all along the Palit GTS 450 Sonic Platinum was 15% faster than the standard card.
When adding a second GeForce GTS 450 graphics card for SLI mode the average frame rate was boosted by 76%. With an average frame rate of 58fps the GeForce GTS 450 SLI configuration was just a fraction slower than the Radeon HD 5870 and GeForce GTX 470 graphics cards.
