The Nvidia GeForce MX450 is an entry-level graphics card for laptops. Although it’s a basic video card, it’s faster than the common integrated graphics processors like the Intel UHD or AMD Radeon Vega series. On the other hand, it greatly lags behind the gaming-class graphics cards such as the Nvidia GeForce GTX or RTX series.
Generally, one can say the MX450 provides better gaming smoothness than the usual integrated graphics processors. These can be used for non-demanding game titles or select heavier games on low graphics detail settings. But, they can’t provide enough power for smooth playing the latest high-end game titles on high settings and resolutions.
There are multiple variants of the MX450. The basic ones that consume 12 Watts of power are noticeably slower than those with 25- and 28.5-Watt power consumption.
Nvidia GeForce MX450 Benchmark
Note: The benchmark scores of the listed graphics processors are averages measured across various devices with these processors. The scores and real-world performance of the Nvidia GeForce MX450 and compared GPUs may vary depending on the notebooks' other components, settings, cooling, and other factors (especially single-channel vs faster dual-channel RAM and speed of the main processor). However, the benchmark results, as well as gameplay videos, are good indicators of the graphics processors' performance.
