In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 5500 Mobile are massively better than the Intel HD Graphics 3000 Mobile.

The Graphics 5500 was released over three years more recently than the Graphics 3000, and so the Graphics 5500 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Graphics 3000 when running the latest games.

The HD Graphics 5500 Mobile and the HD Graphics 3000 Mobile have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Graphics 5500 has 17.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Graphics 3000, which means that the memory performance of the Graphics 5500 is slightly better than the Graphics 3000.

The Graphics 5500 has 24 Shader Processing Units but the Graphics 3000 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 5500 Mobile requires 15 Watts to run but there is no entry for the HD Graphics 3000 Mobile.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD Graphics 5500 Mobile are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's ULV Broadwell Processors.

The Broadwell Core includes support for DirectX 11.2, OpenCL 2.0 and OpenGL 4.3. Additionally, it also offers better Decoding Performance, when compared to its Predecessors.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GT2 which offers 24 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 1 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 100MHz and goes up to 950MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 1GB. Depending on whether or not the system's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface. The operating memory clock also depends on the at which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 800MHz.
It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance almost on level with a dedicated GeForce GT 540M.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD Graphics 5500 Mobile.
