The GeForce MX550, Nvidia’s forthcoming entry-level GPU for mobile devices, was reported in December of last year. The first benchmark for the GeForce MX550 has been discovered by hardware investigator Tum Apisak, demonstrating the card’s performance in comparison to the current competitive market.
The GeForce MX550 is still left vague, following its formal announcement. GeForce MX550 is still based on the Turing architecture, according to Nvidia’s statements. The GeForce MX550 uses the same TU117 silicon as the GeForce MX450, which is unexpected. Using the GeForce MX450 as a benchmark, its performance is comparable to that of the GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile.
GeForce MX550’s PCIe 4.0 and GDDR6 compatibility are the only things we know about it. It’s possible that the Tensor and Ray Tracing cores have been removed, although the graphics card’s heart is the TU116 chip. GeForce MX550 features include Nvidia Optimus and Resizable BAR. The more modern Advanced Optimus technology, on the other hand, is out of the running for now.
Benchmarks: GeForce MX550
The GeForce MX550 entry is the only one in the PassMark database, and this should be taken into consideration. Overclocked and non-overclocked GPUs are included in the overall score for the other GPUs. This means you should be skeptical of the GeForce MX550 score.
The GeForce MX550 was up to 35% faster than the GeForce MX450 regarding the generation-over-generation performance. The GeForce GTX 1650 Mobile, on the other hand, was 39% better than the MX550.
The GeForce MX550 scored 26% more than AMD’s Radeon RX 5500M in our tests. Because of this, PassMark Software does not have any information about the Red Team’s most modern Radeon RX 6000M graphics cards. The Ryzen 9 5900HS Zen 3 mobile APU, with eight Vega processing cores and a clock speed of 2,100 MHz, edged out the GeForce MX550 by a hair. According to our calculations, the margin of error would be less than 1%.
In terms of gaming GPUs, the GeForce MX550 falls short. Nvidia’s GeForce MX series, on the other hand, is positioned as a small improvement above integrated graphics. Radeon Vega, AMD’s mobile graphics processor, maintains its superior results.
