AMD has made a bit more noise today with another addition to its HD 5000 series lineup. Don't get too excited though, as the new HD 5450 nestles in right at the bottom of the pack for entry level buyers looking for something on the cheap.
While gaming is out of the question for the most part, the card should be an attractive model due to the EyeFinity support (handy for some multi-monitor office work) and DX11 at lower than normal resolutions for around $49 - $59.
The reference model has been brought out with 512MB of GDDR3 memory, but ATI has mentioned a 1GB variant is on the horizon, not that this will do much for it really, as we have tested and learned in the past more memory is often not going to help on a card with specs this low.
You can check out our full review of Sapphire's variant here, whilst a few more reviews have popped up on the web since the nda lifted a short time ago :-
