ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3450

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3450

Successor of the HD 2400 produced in 55nm (therefore with a faster clockspeed) and with DirectX 10.1 support.

The 40 unified shaders count like 8 shaders on Nvidia cards (5-dimensional versus 1-dimensional).

The Avivo HD video support enables the gpu to decode HD videos (MPEG-2, H.264, VC-1).

The performance of the card can be suited for modest casual gamers. Demanding games like Crysis run only with very low details and resolution.

Compared to the desktop HD 3450, the Mobility version has a lower core clock speed and is therefore a bit slower.
