In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 735M are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 550M 2GB.

The GT 550M has a 165 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GT 735M, but the GeForce GT 735M has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 550M. As a result, the GeForce GT 735M exhibits a 6.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GT 550M. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GT 550M has a 165 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GT 735M, but the GeForce GT 735M has 12 more Render Output Units than the GT 550M. As a result, the GeForce GT 735M exhibits a 6.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GT 550M. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce GT 735M was released over a year more recently than the GT 550M, and so the GeForce GT 735M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GT 550M.

The GeForce GT 735M and the GeForce GT 550M 2GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GT 550M has 14.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 735M, which means that the memory performance of the GT 550M is slightly better than the GeForce GT 735M.

The GeForce GT 735M has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 550M 2GB has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 735M is 361 and the actual shader performance of the GT 550M is 142. The GeForce GT 735M having 219 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GT 735M delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 550M.

The GeForce GT 735M transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 550M. This means that the GeForce GT 735M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 550M.

The GeForce GT 735M requires 17 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 550M 2GB requires 35 Watts. The GT 550M requires 18 Watts more than the GeForce GT 735M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 550M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce GT 735M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 735M is a Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Kepler Architecture.

Architecture
This Graphics Card Equips the Kepler GK208 GPU which is essentially a power optimized version of the GK107 GPU. Whereas it still has a count of 2 Stream Multiprocessors, the bus-width has been cut in half to allow for even a smaller power consumption and consequently a cooler operating temperature.
Additionally, the GK208 GPU allows the Central Unit to reach a significant higher frequency, thanks to the Kepler Boost 2.0 Technology. The better the laptop's cooling system, the higher the frequency.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GK208 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 575MHz and may reach up to 941MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Kepler Boost 2.0, Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 33W, it is suited for small laptops.

Performance
GeForce GT 730M is essentially a fast GeForce GT 645M.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is on average with the older GeForce GT 640M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 735M.
Overview
GeForce GT 550M 2GB is a middle-class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF108 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 740MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 35W, it is suited for 15" or larger laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance only slightly above a desktop GeForce GT 430.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 550M 2GB.
