Hardware Roundup: Weekend Edition

AXLE is a relative newcomer to the North American market and we're beginning to see more units being reviewed and today's roundup includes two Radeon graphics cards from the Hong Kong manufacturer, both on the budget end of the lineup. First up is the HD 5670 that replaces the reference cooler with a custom heatsink from Arctic Cooling. The second unit being reviewed is the HD 5450 (recently reviewed by OCC here) that is passively cooled and best suited for HTPC type applications. While we're talking about HTPCs, our roundup also has a review on the ASUS P7H55-D EVO motherboard (also reviewed by OCC here), a mid-range offering with onboard video options that support the integrated graphics which are found on Intel's Clarksdale processors.
