How well can the GeForce GT 550M 2GB run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GT 550M 2GB is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs. GeForce GT 550M 2GB is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

How many years will the GeForce GT 550M 2GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GT 550M 2GB in your PC? Its upgrade time for the GeForce GT 550M 2GB, assuming you are a modern day gamer.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GT 550M 2GB? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GT 550M 2GB then a good choice would be 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile as this is better than 982 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 1692% better performance as well. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB, as it can run 606 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 1016% increased graphics performance.

GeForce GT 550M 2GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
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.

Well I still use my 540M for browsing. In fact, I am using right now. Actually strike that. Browsing uses the Intel HD 3000 lol
