In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 550M 2GB are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon HD 7590M.

The GT 550M has a 140 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 7590M, but the Radeon HD 7590M has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 550M. As a result, the Radeon HD 7590M exhibits a 2.6 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 140 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 7590M, but the Radeon HD 7590M has 4 more Render Output Units than the GT 550M. As a result, the Radeon HD 7590M exhibits a 1.8 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 Radeon HD 7590M was released over a year more recently than the GT 550M, and so the Radeon HD 7590M 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 GT 550M has 1024 MB more video memory than the Radeon HD 7590M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GT 550M also has superior memory performance overall.

The GT 550M has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 7590M, which means that the memory performance of the GT 550M is marginally better than the Radeon HD 7590M.

The Radeon HD 7590M has 480 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 550M 2GB has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 7590M is 144 and the actual shader performance of the GT 550M is 142. The Radeon HD 7590M having 2 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GT 550M performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 7590M requires 18 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 550M 2GB requires 35 Watts. The GT 550M requires 17 Watts more than the Radeon HD 7590M 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 Radeon HD 7590M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 7590M is an Entry-Level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Terascale Architecture.

Architecture
The Second variant of the Terascale 2 Architecture is still manufactured with a 40nm technology and despite allowing more Stream Cores, their design remains more or less the same compared to the first variant.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Thames XT which has 6 Compute Units activated and thus offers 480 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit runs at 600MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The memory clock operates at 800MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, HD3D, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, PowerPlay and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 18W, it is suited for average sized laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhere between GeForce GT 525M and GeForce GT 540M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile and 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 7590M.
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.
