In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8550G + HD 8670M Dual are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT.

The HD 8550G was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 9800M GT, and so the HD 8550G is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 9800M GT when running the latest games.

The GeForce 9800M GT has 512 MB video memory, but the HD 8550G does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 8550G + HD 8670M Dual has 640 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 9800M GT has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 8550G is 624 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is 120. The HD 8550G having 504 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 9800M GT performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD 8550G transistor size technology is 33 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9800M GT. This means that the HD 8550G is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9800M GT.

The Radeon HD 8550G + HD 8670M Dual requires 50 Watts to run and the GeForce 9800M GT requires 65 Watts. The GeForce 9800M GT requires 15 Watts more than the HD 8550G to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 9800M GT to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD 8550G.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 8550G + HD 8670M Dual is a combination of a Radeon 8550G (integrated graphics) with a Radeon HD 8670M (dedicated).
This combination is called Asymmetric CrossFire and can also lead to Micro Stuttering.
Unfortunately, benchmarks indicate the performance is,at times, worse than a single Radeon HD 8670M performing by itself. This is due to poor driver support.
However, on some games the performance did exceed a dedicated GeForce GT 740M.
NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GT GPUs deliver optimized performance for immersive gaming on-the-go. Powering the next generation of visual computing, blazing-fast mobile gaming, and the ultimate HD experience with PureVideo HD technology. This product is also enabled for CUDA applications and is NVIDIA PhysX-ready.
