In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop are marginally better than the AMD Radeon HD 6550D.

The Graphics 510 was released over three years more recently than the Radeon HD 6550D, and so the Graphics 510 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon HD 6550D when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 6550D has 512 MB video memory, but the Graphics 510 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 510 Desktop has 12 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 6550D has 400. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 510 is 101 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 6550D is 156. The Radeon HD 6550D having 55 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Graphics 510 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD Graphics 510 Desktop requires 47 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 6550D requires 100 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 510. The Radeon HD 6550D requires 53 Watts more than the Graphics 510 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Radeon HD 6550D may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Graphics 510.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Skylake Processors.

Architecture
The Skylake Core includes support for DirectX 12.1, OpenCL 2.0 and OpenGL 4.4. Additionally, it also supports DDR4 Memory.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT1 which offers 12 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 350MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 1.7GB. 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
Gaming benchmarks put its performance almost on level with the older Intel HD Graphics 4400.

System Suggestions
Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Decent Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Radeon HD 6550D is an integrated GPU in one of AMD's processors. It's part of the high-end class GPUS of this Series. It supports DirectX 11 and uses system memory and it only supports DDR3-1866 memory type.
The performance, is obviously, limited but demanding games should still be playable from low to medium settings (depending on the resolution + DirectX version used), while very demanding games might not run at all or might require very reduced settings. All in all, even though it supports DirectX 11, most likely games that use it are unplayable to the lowest settings or only playable on the lowest settings because every game out there using DirectX 11 is either demanding or very demanding.
