In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R6 8700P are significantly better than the Intel HD Graphics 5500 Mobile.

The Radeon R6 8700P has a 700 MHz higher core clock speed and 20 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 5500. This results in the Radeon R6 8700P providing 18.8 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 Radeon R6 8700P has a 700 MHz higher core clock speed and 7 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 5500. This results in the Radeon R6 8700P providing 6.3 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 Radeon R6 8700P was released less than a year after the Graphics 5500, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon R6 8700P and the HD Graphics 5500 Mobile have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Radeon R6 8700P has 4.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Graphics 5500, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon R6 8700P is marginally better than the Graphics 5500.

The Radeon R6 8700P has 384 Shader Processing Units and the HD Graphics 5500 Mobile has 24. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R6 8700P is 261 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 5500 is 182. The Radeon R6 8700P having 79 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon R6 8700P delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Graphics 5500.

The Graphics 5500 transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon R6 8700P. This means that the Graphics 5500 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon R6 8700P.

The Radeon R6 8700P requires 35 Watts to run and the HD Graphics 5500 Mobile requires 15 Watts. The Radeon R6 8700P requires 20 Watts more than the Graphics 5500 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon R6 8700P to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Graphics 5500.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R6 8700P is an Integrated Graphics Card in the APU A10-8700P Quad-Core Processor.

GPU
The Central Unit Runs at 800MHz.

Memory
The GPU also 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 1067MHz.
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
Benchmarks Indicate Performance around of a Dedicated GeForce 920M.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon R6 8700P.
Overview
Intel HD Graphics 5500 Mobile are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's ULV Broadwell Processors.

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 GT2 which offers 24 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 1 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 100MHz and goes up to 950MHz, 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 800MHz.
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 almost on level with a dedicated GeForce GT 540M.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD Graphics 5500 Mobile.
