ATI Radeon HD 5450 On Linux

By default this Sapphire Radeon HD 5450 uses a standard expansion slot bracket, but if you wish to install this graphics card in an HTPC or other petite chassis there are the low profile brackets that can be used. This graphics card has dual-link DVI, HDMI, and VGA connectors with the DVI and HDMI ports fitting one low-profile bracket while the VGA port can optionally be connected to the other low-profile bracket as it has just connected to the graphics card PCB via a ribbon cable.

Obviously, with this Radeon HD 5450 graphics card being compatible with low-profile systems, the PCB too is only half the height of standard PCI Express graphics cards. On this graphics card is a very simply passive heatsink that is colored black and secured to the PCB via four pushpins. There is also a lip to the passive heatsink that wraps around the PCB to the other side, but the memory ICs are not cooled by this fan-less solution.

With this ATI Cedar graphics card having a maximum power consumption of just 19 Watts (and it is expected to idle at around six Watts), no external PCI Express power connector is required. There is also no CrossFire connector needed for this graphics card. The DDR2 memory ICs found on this Sapphire Radeon HD 5450 512MB graphics card were from Hynix and carried a model number of HY5PS1G1631C.

As was already said, the video outputs on this graphics card include dual-link DVI, HDMI, and VGA.
