PC Advisor found the ENGTS450 TOP DirectCU to be an excellent performer thanks to its efficient cooling system and factory overclock. It's also remarkably silent even when running at full load and managed to beat its most direct competitor, the Radeon 5770, in every benchmark, proving that Nvidia have managed to get their mojo back.

This overclocked Asus variant of Nvidia's GTS 450 showed impressive speeds in Bit-tech's tests, but in spite of this they couldn't recommend it due to its price, which is the same as that of the faster GTX 460. On merits alone this would be a very good card by any standards, but with such competition, there simply is no reason for it to exist.

4 out of 5 stars

Tech Radar particularly liked the GTS 450 when it was overclocked, but even at stock speeds it is a solid graphics chip. They struggle to recommend it though for two reasons: its main competition at the same price, the HD5770, worked equally well in all performance tests. Also the GTS460, Asus' chip with a higher spec, is far superior and doesn't cost too much more.
