Formalized last December, the GeForce MX550 and MX570 are graphics cards first designed to accompany laptops. On paper, they should be associated with mid-range CPUs and offer them decent graphics performance.

A CPU + GPU combo less expensive than APUs

The first tests obtained by our colleagues from Videocardz compare the performance of a GeForce MX550 to that of a Ryzen 9 5900HS, an APU equipped with a Vega 8 graphics solution.

The measurement software used is none other than PassMark and on the first tool – the G3D Mark test – the NVIDIA signed card obtains 5,014 points while the AMD CPU is at 4,968 points. The difference observed is barely 0.9% and the question therefore arises of the quality/price ratio of the two solutions.

On the one hand, we have an APU, certainly powerful, but expensive and, on the other, a GeForce MX550 sold for a pittance to be associated with mid-range CPUs. The first solution should lead to perhaps thinner and more modern laptops, but also significantly more expensive.
