Radeon HD 8550D Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon HD 8550D is an embedded Graphics Card on the high-end Richland APUs A10-6500T
They offer 256 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The memory interface depends on whether or not the system's RAM is dual channelled.
While the central unit runs at 720MHz, since the GFX doesn't have dedicated memory, the bandwidth will depend on the system ram speed which can be up to 2133MHz (the max speed supported by the CPU). Therefore, the max boost clock is 844MHz.
Its performance is quite superior to Intel HD 4600 but only very slightly better than previous Radeon HD 7550D.
