In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7550M v2 are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT.

The HD 7550M was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 9800M GT, and so the HD 7550M 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 HD 7550M 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, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GeForce 9800M GT has 25.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 7550M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is slightly better than the HD 7550M.

The Radeon HD 7550M v2 has 480 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 9800M GT has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 7550M is 108 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is 120. The GeForce 9800M GT having 12 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 9800M GT delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 7550M.

The HD 7550M transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9800M GT. This means that the HD 7550M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9800M GT. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the HD 7550M should consume less power than the GeForce 9800M GT.

The Radeon HD 7550M v2 requires 14 Watts to run and the GeForce 9800M GT requires 65 Watts. The GeForce 9800M GT requires 51 Watts more than the HD 7550M to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce 9800M GT may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD 7550M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 7550M v2 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 PRO which has 6 Compute Units activated and thus offers 480 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit runs at 450MHz.

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 14W, it is suited for average sized laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhere on average with GeForce GT 425M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile and 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 7550M v2.
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.
