GTS450 vs HD6850?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
How does a GTS450 stack up against an HD6850 at 1600x900 resolution?

I'm thinking of adding it to my build as a secondary card for Adobe AfterEffects because AfterEffects doesnt support my HD6850
for gpu accelerated rendering.

If its fast enough for my resolution, i might get rid of the 6850 and just keep the gts450

Are you planning on doing anything else with that rig of yours other than working with Adobe?

I would think the HD6850 is way faster then the GTS450

I usually play Skyrim, NBA2k13 and Killing Floor at 1600x900.

the motherboard im getting is a gigabyte z77 with 2 pci-e slots so I could use the GTS450 for adobe and the hd6850 for games.
But if its fast enough for my games, I could sell the HD6850 and just use the GTS450 alone.


im getting the used gts450 for $49
its a good deal here in my country since a new one costs $120

If you end up selling the 6850, then grab another 450 for sli and clock them both up to 950-1Ghz core

I have run AfterEffect and Premiere CS 6 on three monitors using two GTS450's on my workstation for the last two and a half years. I have no complaints thumb.gif

You should be fine with that then. Its not that bad a card though there are a lot of better options.

You'll just have to tweak your settings a bit but you can run at a good enough FPS in Skyrim (LINK). NBA 2k13 and killing floor arent demanding so that shouldn't be a problem either

edit: but in terms of gaming performance, it would be better to keep the 6850 and have the 450 in the second slot for graphics acceleration for your Adobe work

i wouldnt hold your breath on 450 its a very weak card :/ look @ the 650 now ... i would sell your 6850 and get at least a 460 GTX even then you're playing with fire coz these cards are outdated ... 460 is 2 generations old vs 6850 1 gen old (almost 2) (though 6850 is a weak card itself)

You have to remember than most games havent actually demanded more resources yet since we are still on the multi platform train. So its not like they actually lost performance just for being an older card.

HD6850 is faster but you're better off with a GTX 560 /GTX 560 Ti or something. More CUDA cores and whatnot.

GTX 560 TI 448> HD6950 > GTX 560TI > HD6870 /GTX 470 > GTX 560 > HD 6850
