NVIDIA GeForce MX550
The Nvidia GeForce MX550 (GN18-S5-A1, TU117-670-A1 Chip) is an entry-level mobile graphics card for laptops. It is based on the old Turing TU117 chip (as the older MX450) and uses a 64 Bit memory bus with GDDR6 graphics memory. First benchmarks show a 17% performance increase compared to the old GeForce MX450 which could indicate more shaders (1024 instead of 896). The similarly named GeForce MX570 is around 30% faster and uses the Ampere GA107 chip.
The gaming performance should be similar to the older GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and therefore demanding games will only run in low settings fluently.
The TU117 chip is manufactured on a 12nm TSMC process and should be rated at 25 Watt TGP (as the old MX450).
