PNY GeForce GTS 450 1GB XLR8 Video Card Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Hardware Canucks have posted a review of the PNY GeForce GTS 450 1GB XLR8 graphics card, which is based on the mainstream Fermi-based GF106 core.
Here's what they had to say:
"PNY has come forward with an XLR8 card that proves itself to be a step above a standard GTS 450 from a number of different aspects. Their 5-year warranty is currently one of the best offered on a sub-$150 card and even if you forget to register it within 90 days, the basic 3-year warranty is still a year longer that some board partners' full 2-year warranty on the reference card. PNY has also seen fit to include a number of value added items such as a mini HDMI to HDMI adaptor, free movie downloads, a StarCraft II trial and a membership to ESEA. These are all completely free as PNYs card doesnt cost any more than the reference versions $129."
This is a pretty good model when you consider the extra long warranty, but there are definitely faster GTS 450's on the market.
