The NVIDIA GeForce MX550 is even in performance with AMD integrated GPUs

Beyond the new Geforce RTX 3090 Ti, and even the already advanced next-generation graphics cards, NVIDIA is not only focusing on the high-end, now presenting your new GeForce MX550 GPU, a Turing-based discrete graphics card for slim multimedia notebooks.

Specifically, this chart it is based on the TU117 GPU, the slowest range within this architecture, completely lacking support for ray tracing and DLSS technologies. Although in reality that is not really a problem, since it is not about GPUs raised for games, but to cover a minimum use within the field of dedicated graphics.

A very interesting segment because it offers almost identical performance to some of the graphics solutions integrated into the CPU, which begs the question why we need such GPUs. And it is that in fact, according to the data of the tests shared in PassMark, we can see that the new GeForce MX550 remain in just 5014 points for the G3D Mark tests, almost the same score as the Vega 8 graphics integrated in the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HS processors, which currently reach 4968 points.

This implies that these new NVIDIA graphics They only offer 0.9% more speed, which, with only a single sample at the moment, is within the margin of error. In fact, it should be noted that PassMark is not usually a particularly popular benchmark in GPU evaluation today, mainly due to the fact that they have a very limited number of samples available, in this case, barely comparing a single sample of the GeForce MX550 with nine samples with 5900HS iGPU.

Thus, we will have to wait until new samples begin to be advanced to really see the final performance of these new graphics, and if they really manage to outperform AMD’s integrated GPUs or not. In the same way, it would also be pending to know its final price of departure, being able to remain as an interesting alternative to update a laptop when the use of a higher level dedicated card is not necessary.
