In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti WindForce Edition are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 6530D.

The GTX 550 Ti was released less than a year after the Radeon HD 6530D, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 550 Ti has 512 MB more video memory than the Radeon HD 6530D, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 550 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 550 Ti has 68.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 6530D, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 550 Ti is much better than the Radeon HD 6530D.

The GeForce GTX 550 Ti WindForce Edition has 192 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 6530D has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 550 Ti is 372 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 6530D is 92. The GTX 550 Ti having 280 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 550 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD 6530D.

The Radeon HD 6530D requires 64 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 550 Ti. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 550 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 550 Ti WindForce Edition is a special edition of the upper-middle-class GeForce GTX 550 Ti. See the standard edition's page for more information.
The new features include an increase in the clock from 900MHz to 970MHz and a new cooling system.
Benchmarks indicate a 4.5% performance boost when compared to the reference card..
Some modern demanding games will run at the highest settings using a 1080p resolution but the largest part will have to be played with a 720p resolution to be played optimally.
This Graphics Card needs to be paired with a decent Quad Core CPU.
Radeon HD 6530D is an integrated GPU in one of AMD's processors. It's part of the high-end class GPUS of this Series. It supports DirectX 11 and uses system memory and it only supports DDR3-1866 memory type.
The performance, is obviously, limited but demanding games should still be playable from low to medium settings (depending on the resolution + DirectX version used), while very demanding games might not run at all or might require very reduced settings. All in all, even though it supports DirectX 11, most likely games that use it are unplayable to the lowest settings or only playable on the lowest settings because every game out there using DirectX 11 is either demanding or very demanding.
