AMD Radeon HD 6550M vs AMD Radeon HD 6530M

AMD Radeon HD 6550M

► remove from comparison AMD Radeon HD 6550M

The AMD Radeon HD 6550M (or ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6550) is a renamed version of the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650. As the 5650, the HD6550M supports DirectX 11, Shader Model 5.0, OpenGL 4.1, OpenCL 1.1, and Directcompute 11. The integrated video processor is still an UVD 2.2 for H.264, VC-1 and MPEG-2 video decoding.

The gaming performance should be somewhere between a HD 5650 and a HD 5730 depending on the used graphics memory. Therfore, demanding games like Risen or Battlefield Bad Company 2 can be played in medium to high details fluently. Less demanding games like Fifa 11 should run fluently in Full HD resolution and maximum detail settings.

The power consumption is between 15-30 Watt for the chip (according to AMD). This fits perfectly the HD 5650 (15-19 Watt) and 5730 (26 Watt) and is therefore best suited for 15" laptops.

AMD Radeon HD 6530M

► remove from comparison AMD Radeon HD 6530M

The AMD Radeon HD 6530M (or ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6530) is a renamed low power version of the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650.

As the 5650, the HD6530M supports DirectX 11, Shader Model 5.0, OpenGL 4.1, OpenCL 1.1, and Directcompute 11. The integrated video processor is still an UVD 2.2 for H.264, VC-1 and MPEG-2 video decoding.

The gaming performance should be on par with a HD 5650 depending on the used graphics memory. Therfore, demanding games like Risen or Battlefield Bad Company 2 can be played in medium to high details fluently. Less demanding games like Fifa 11 should run fluently in Full HD resolution and maximum detail settings.

The power consumption is between 15+ Watt for the chip (according to AMD) and therefore best suited for 13-15" laptops.
