Radeon HD 6550D compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Radeon HD 6550D has poor performance. This is not altogether surprising, as it is an integrated GPU. If a robust graphical system is desired, a dedicated graphics card upgrade is a must, though you can get away with an integrated GPU for less intensive applications and games. This integrated GPU is now over 6 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. This integrated GPU will be dwarfed in performance by its modern counterparts, and will likely have very little driver support from AMD.

With an effective SPU count of 156, the AMD Radeon HD 6550D processes shading and special graphical effects fairly poorly. The GPU is not too power-hungry at 100 Watts, however.
