In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 5600 are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 6550D.

The Radeon HD 6550D was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 5600, and so the Radeon HD 6550D is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro FX 5600 when running the latest games.

The Quadro FX 5600 has 1024 MB more video memory than the Radeon HD 6550D, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro FX 5600 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro FX 5600 has 76.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 6550D, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is much better than the Radeon HD 6550D.

The Radeon HD 6550D has 400 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 5600 has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 6550D is 156 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is 77. The Radeon HD 6550D having 79 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 5600 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 6550D requires 100 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 5600 requires 171 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the Quadro FX 5600, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the Radeon HD 6550D. The Quadro FX 5600 requires 71 Watts more than the Radeon HD 6550D to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro FX 5600 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon HD 6550D.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon 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.
A revolutionary unified architecture, NVIDIA Quadro® FX 5600 and 4600 graphics boards deliver optimized application performance. Combining the industry's most advanced feature set, including largest frame buffers, with a C programming environment, Quadro solutions solve the most complex problems. The reference standard for Shader Model 4.0, Quadro FX 5600 and 4600 enables next generation applications with unprecedented image quality.
