How well can the HD i7 5550U run games
The HD i7 5550U is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

All games with system requirements of DirectX 11 or lower are met by this card.

This low performing GPU is unable to play any of the most demanding games available today.

How many years will the HD i7 5550U graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the HD i7 5550U in your PC? This HD i7 5550U graphics card has reached the end of its ability to run games released today. If you have it in your gaming PC then it’s time to upgrade your graphics solution.

HD i7 5550U Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Intel HD i7 5550U is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 6000 Mobile that is integrated in the Core I7-5550U Processor.


Architecture
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.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT3 which offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 300MHz and goes up to 1000MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
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 933MHz.
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.


Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance on level with a dedicated GeForce GT 720M.


System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD i7 5550U.
