Radeon HD 6550D Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon 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.

How is this only 8% better than my X1950 pro… even when I couple the 1950 with 3gb of ram and a core i3 (my mates pc) it still lags at high settings on the sims 3 so this cannot be slightly better… can it?

If I get a discrete card does the APU's GPU stop using power from the PSU?

Depends. If you get a choose not to use dual graphics then the gpu on this chip will no longer draw power from the psu.. If you do go for dual graphics (its a cheap way to get better performance) then you will need a psu that can supply 100W+ whatever the additional graphics chip uses. Hope this helps :)

my overclocked HD 6550D @800mhz didn't reach the official benchmarks of the unOCed, I can play games like Guild Wars 2 on high settings with medium shaders and no fxaa at a resolution of 1680x1050.
But my benchmarkscore are just like a half than the scores of other people using this apu. I only have one RAM module and shared 512mb of it to the apu that was the highest i could choose.
Can someone help me?

Says the same for my HD 6530D, I'd guess it's an error.
