In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel 655 GT3e are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 445M v2.

The GT 445M has a 270 MHz higher core clock speed than the 655 GT3e, but the 655 GT3e has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 445M. As a result, the 655 GT3e exhibits a 0.7 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GT 445M. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GT 445M has a 270 MHz higher core clock speed and 13 more Render Output Units than the 655 GT3e. This results in the GT 445M providing 8.2 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The 655 GT3e was released over three years more recently than the GT 445M, and so the 655 GT3e is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GT 445M when running the latest games.

The GT 445M has 1024 MB video memory, but the 655 GT3e does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The 655 GT3e has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 445M v2 has 144. However, the actual shader performance of the 655 GT3e is 461 and the actual shader performance of the GT 445M is 164. The 655 GT3e having 297 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GT 445M performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The 655 GT3e transistor size technology is 26 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GT 445M. This means that the 655 GT3e is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GT 445M.

The 655 GT3e requires 28 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 445M v2 requires 35 Watts. The GT 445M requires 7 Watts more than the 655 GT3e to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 445M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the 655 GT3e.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 GT3e are integrated graphics in some of Intel's Kaby Lake mobile processors. It can be found in Intel i7-8559U, i5-8269U, i5-8259U, i3-8109U

Architecture
The Kaby Lake architecture succeeds the Skylake architecture and aims for increased CPU and graphics performance, via the same power requirements. It includes support for DirectX 12.1, OpenCL 2.1 and OpenGL 4.6.
GPU
The central unit initially runs at 300MHz and goes up to 1200MHz, in turbo mode in the Intel i7-8559U.

Performance
Because Performance depends heavily on the Memory Bandwidth, it may vary heavily from System to System.
Best case scenario, expect performance similar to the AMD Radeon RX Vega 5.
Overview
GeForce GT 445M v2 is a Fast-Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GF106-N11E-GE-A1 which has 3 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 144 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 570MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 625MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 35W, it is suited for 15" or larger laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance almost on level with the desktop GeForce GT 450 v4.

System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 445M v2.
