When you see someone having more problems than other users are reporting with the same setup, you have a choice. You can either say "ha ha, someone else is getting bad information" and come back here to crow, or you can say "hey look, other users at <forum> are reporting that this stuff works, maybe you need newer drivers or should talk to those other users for help".
One makes things worse, one makes things better. Your call.
Clearer writing would probably help. Most obvious example, from the first paragraph of the review:
The conjunction "but" is intended to introduce something that contradicts an earlier point. Given that this is the lowest end card, the fact that it will cost less than $50 is not a contradiction. This should have used "that" or "and" instead, because the following point reinforces the earlier point, not contradicts it.In this article we are reviewing the ATI Radeon HD 5450 "Cedar" graphics card, which is AMD's lowest-end Evergreen GPU but will set you back less than $50 USD.
An appropriate use of "but" would have been if it said e.g. "but will set you back more than $500" - i.e., if the price was not reasonably matched to its position in the lineup.
When the basic English is so flawed, and various facts and opinions are glued together so poorly, it's easy to get confused about what conclusion or final point is actually being made.
Hopefully, prices will come down in two weeks. Not sure I'll want a HD 5450, though. I'll look at the 5570 and see how much it is.
In case you are serious, remember that 5570 gddr5 has much more performance than 5570 ddr2/ddr3.
Yayyy nice test thank you so much michael i bought a 5450 1gb ddr2 vram last day...
i now wrote on the 5450 card..
yes very nice idle 6watt and tdp 20watt :-)
i sell my 4670 last day.
but in hin tests on all playable games the 5450 is over 30fps in reallity a better GPU in linux is just for benchmarkapps without any usefull or funny playgame.
and yes do this test again on OSS drivers and you will see the nvidia lose
yayyyy i'm so pro nvidia i buy a used hd5450 yesterday and sell my 4670-
just because it makes no difference if you use linux.
