In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 555M 3GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 710M.

The GeForce 710M has a 185 MHz higher core clock speed than the GT 555M, but the GT 555M has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 710M. As a result, the GT 555M exhibits a 1.8 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce 710M. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce 710M has a 185 MHz higher core clock speed than the GT 555M, but the GT 555M has 8 more Render Output Units than the GeForce 710M. As a result, the GT 555M exhibits a 3.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce 710M. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce 710M was released over a year more recently than the GT 555M, and so the GeForce 710M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GT 555M.

The GT 555M has 2048 MB more video memory than the GeForce 710M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GT 555M also has superior memory performance overall.

The GT 555M has 28.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 710M, which means that the memory performance of the GT 555M is slightly better than the GeForce 710M.

The GeForce GT 555M 3GB has 144 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 710M has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 555M is 170 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 710M is 149. The GT 555M having 21 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GT 555M delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 710M.

The GeForce 710M transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 555M. This means that the GeForce 710M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 555M.

The GeForce GT 555M 3GB requires 35 Watts to run and the GeForce 710M requires 15 Watts. The GT 555M requires 20 Watts more than the GeForce 710M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 555M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 710M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 555M 3GB is a fast-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 GF106 which has 3 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 144 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 590MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 3GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 192-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 identical to a desktop GeForce GT 440 v3.

System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 555M.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and 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 15W, it is suited for small laptops.

Performance
GeForce GT 710M is essentially a fast GeForce GT 620M.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is slightly below the older GeForce GT 540M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce 710M.
