The Radeon 3450 uses a RV620 chip [http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/driver/xf86-video-radeonhd/plain/README].
The radeonhd driver (x11-drivers/xf86-video-radeonhd) now supports 2D accelleration for this chip. 3D hardware accelleration support for this chip (and indeed all R6xx chips) is being worked on, but not ready for prime time. See [http://www.x.org/wiki/radeonhd] The Xorg server falls back to software 3D rendering through Mesa [http://www.mesa3d.org/]. Depending on your application and CPU power this might be fast enough.
