    I think that this card is disastrous. The difference between integrated and this might be huge but 5FPS and 12FPS are the same when talking about games. So it's better but this can't be seen from the performance. It's suited for htpc use, but there are the IGP-s that nowadays can drive a HD screen and play a movie. Performance wise how does it compare to GT220 and G210 in non directx 11 titles? Is it any better than a 3 year old low end card with a wider bus(my 9500GT, which was a bit slower than the 220 due to less memory and 16SP-s)and more ROPs and less SPs?

    From this review.

    GT520 is slower and pricey than GT220. Better only by low TDP.
    I thinks very low performance market for discrete graphic should be stop.
    Let's it handle by APU like Fusion or Sandy bridge.

    8.0 = 0. I understand the scoring system now.

    Jeez, what a piece of crap. I'd like to see how it stacks up against the SB IGP's...

    Why does the 6450 have a different price in this review compared to it's own review? :S

    It's hard to exaggerate how much this card blows. It's totally, utterly useless for gaming. There are much cheaper HTPC cards that will do that job fine...unless of course you own something like an i3-530 which would probably crush this even with its sucky "Intel HD" GPU....
