In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 555M v2 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT.

The GT 555M was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 9800M GT, and so the GT 555M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 9800M GT.

The GT 555M has 512 MB more video memory than the GeForce 9800M GT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce 9800M GT has superior memory performance.

The GeForce 9800M GT has 1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 555M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is marginally better than the GT 555M.

Both the GeForce GT 555M v2 and the GeForce 9800M GT have 96 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GT 555M is 145 and by the GeForce 9800M GT is 120. Knowing that the shader performance of the GT 555M is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GT 555M transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9800M GT. This means that the GT 555M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9800M GT.

The GeForce GT 555M v2 requires 35 Watts to run and the GeForce 9800M GT requires 65 Watts. The GeForce 9800M GT requires 30 Watts more than the GT 555M 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 GT 555M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 555M v2 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 GF108-400-A1 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 753MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1.5GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 784MHz.

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 almost identical to a desktop GeForce GT 440.

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