In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i7 5557U are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce 710M.

The GeForce 710M has a 475 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD i7 5557U. This results in the GeForce 710M providing 10 GTexel/s better texturing performance. 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 475 MHz higher core clock speed and 6 more Render Output Units than the HD i7 5557U. This results in the GeForce 710M providing 5.6 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD i7 5557U was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 710M, and so the HD i7 5557U is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 710M.

The GeForce 710M has 1024 MB video memory, but the HD i7 5557U does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i7 5557U has 48 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 710M has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 5557U is 422 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 710M is 149. The HD i7 5557U having 273 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD i7 5557U delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 710M.

The HD i7 5557U transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 710M. This means that the HD i7 5557U is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 710M.

The HD i7 5557U requires 28 Watts to run and the GeForce 710M requires 15 Watts. The HD i7 5557U requires 13 Watts more than the GeForce 710M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD i7 5557U to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 710M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD i7 5557U is the specific version of Intel Iris Graphics 6100 Mobile that is integrated in the Core I7-5557U Processor.

Architecture
The Broadwell Core includes support for DirectX 11.2, OpenCL 2.0 and OpenGL 4.3. Additionally, it also offers better Decoding Performance, when compared to its Predecessors.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT3 which offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 300MHz and goes up to 1100MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 1GB. Depending on whether or not the system's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface. The operating memory clock also depends on the at which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 933MHz.
It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance slightly above a dedicated GeForce GT 720M.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD i7 5557U.
Overview
GeForce 710M is a entry-level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second 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 GF117-N14M-GL which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 775MHz. Additionally, GF117 is built using a 28nm technology.

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.
