In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8550G + HD 8750M Dual are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT.

The HD 8550G was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 9800M GT, and so the HD 8550G 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 8550G has 1536 MB more video memory than the GeForce 9800M GT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce 9800M GT has superior memory performance.

The GeForce 9800M GT has 25.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 8550G, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is slightly better than the HD 8550G.

The Radeon HD 8550G + HD 8750M Dual has 640 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 9800M GT has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 8550G is 392 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is 120. The HD 8550G having 272 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 8550G delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 9800M GT.

The HD 8550G transistor size technology is 33 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9800M GT. This means that the HD 8550G is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9800M GT.

The Radeon HD 8550G + HD 8750M Dual requires 50 Watts to run and the GeForce 9800M GT requires 65 Watts. The GeForce 9800M GT requires 15 Watts more than the HD 8550G to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 9800M GT to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD 8550G.
