Both the 5450 and 5570 passed our video test suite with ease, using approximately the same amount of extra power doing so. These figures may seem high compared to the numbers we typically get when testing integrated graphics, but remember our test system configuration has an energy inefficient Pentium D processor, so even minor CPU usage can increase the power demand significantly.

3D Performance

While 3DMark is a completely synthetic benchmark, it is a good general indicator of 3D performance, particularly when the score differences are quite high.

The 5450 scored significantly higher in both 3DMark05 and 3DMark06 than any IGP, similar to the GeForce G210M in the Asus UL80Vt laptop. For reference, we managed to play Call of Duty 4 on the UL80Vt at 1366x768 resolution fairly smoothly with most of the extra details turned on and 2x anti-aliasing. It should also be noted that our HD 5450 sample had memory clocked 100MHz higher than the reference speed. According to ATI, this results in 5~6% higher scores in 3DMark Vantage. AiB partners do have the option of using faster memory if they so desire. The 5570's scores were just below that of the 4670.
