In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8550G + HD 8750M Dual are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 8610G.

The HD 8550G has a 187 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon HD 8610G. This results in the HD 8550G providing 16 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 HD 8550G has a 187 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the Radeon HD 8610G. This results in the HD 8550G providing 7.2 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 8550G was released less than a year after the Radeon HD 8610G, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The HD 8550G has 2048 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 8610G does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 8550G + HD 8750M Dual has 640 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 8610G has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 8550G is 392 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8610G is 240. The HD 8550G having 152 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 8550G delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD 8610G.

The Radeon HD 8550G + HD 8750M Dual requires 50 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 8610G requires 25 Watts. The HD 8550G requires 25 Watts more than the Radeon HD 8610G to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD 8550G to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon HD 8610G.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewCombination of Integrated Radeon HD 8550G with Dedicated Radeon HD 8750M using Assymetric Crossfire. Radeon HD 8610G is an integrated mobile GPU, first seen on the ultra low-voltage APU A10-5745M, based on the 32nm, Terascale 3 architecture.
It offer 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a DDR3 memory interface of either a 128-bit bus width, if the laptop system RAM's is dual-channelled, or a 64-bit bus width, if not. The central units runs at 533MHz and goes up to 626MHz, in Turbo Mode. The memory clock can operate up to 667MHz, as the max memory supported by the CPU is DDR3-1333.
Its performance depends heavily on whether or not the memory is dual-channelled. Benchmarks put its performance on level with today's middle-class GPUs such as GeForce GT 540M-GeForce GT 630M or Radeon HD 7650M/7670M. Therefore, modern demanding games can be played with medium detail.
