    I know that best choice is radeon 460 but i couldn't take it in my 15" order.
    Now i want know how work this discrete graphic card for gaming and if you tried a little editing video with this card.
    I usually play blizzy games (starcraft2/diablo3/etc) but i want know if you have tried other games .
    I will editing with fotomagico or imovie (I will buy final cut or other editing video at january).

    yes, im very happy with the amd 450...from temperature and battery perspective...even in load the gpu is around 70-75 celsius, so very good, i dont know how was the previous generation M370X? anyone can confirm was on par or the last gen amd got higher than 75C in heavy load?

    Throttling was constantly occuring at 75 degrees celsius, and downclocking the GPU from 800 MHz to just 625 MHz.

    That was on M370X. Also M370X is around 35% slower than Radeon Pro 450.

    are you sure that M370X is 30% slower than 450? i thought they are on same specs..and only the 460 is faster

    Yes, I am sure about this. Improved geometry performance in Polaris architecture is making the difference for gaming.

    Computerbase.de have compared R9 280X, with R9 380X, and RX 470 and locked them at the same clock speeds and memory bandwidth, to see how they behave clock for clock. And Polaris was between 15 and 30% faster than R9 280X.

    Cape Verde(M370X) is GCN 1.1, Radeon Pro 450 is GCN 1.4(Polaris). Thats why it is faster.

    Do you think radeon 450 will be more cool(less throttling) than 460?
