In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 550M 2GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 8800M GT.

The GeForce 8800M GT has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The GT 550M was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 8800M GT, and so the GT 550M is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 8800M GT when running the latest games.

The GT 550M has 2048 MB video memory, but the GeForce 8800M GT does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GT 550M has 96 Shader Processing Units but the GeForce 8800M GT does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce GT 550M 2GB requires 35 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 8800M GT.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 550M 2GB is a middle-class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF108 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 740MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 35W, it is suited for 15" or larger laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance only slightly above a desktop GeForce GT 430.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 550M 2GB.
This card does not exist. We leave it here to let people know
The GeForce 8 Series, a computer graphics processing unit, is the eighth generation of NVIDIA's GeForce line. The third major GPU architecture developed at NVIDIA, the GeForce 8 represents the company's first unified shader architecture. It competed primarily against ATI's Radeon HD 2000-series cards.
There has been, at times, controversy over the naming of GeForce 8 series chips, including due to previous-generation chips being repackaged with minor changes (or possibly none at all) with the new names implying they are derived from the newly-introduced GPU chip design featured by the flagship products.
