26 Jan 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

The Iris Graphics 550 Mobile is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

How many years will the Iris Graphics 550 Mobile graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Iris Graphics 550 Mobile in your PC? This Iris Graphics 550 Mobile 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.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Iris Graphics 550 Mobile? A good choice when looking to upgrade the Iris Graphics 550 Mobile would be the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile which meets 981 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 936% better performance. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB, which has 545% better performance and can run 534 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.

Iris Graphics 550 Mobile Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Intel Iris Graphics 550 Mobile are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Skylake Mobile Processors.


Architecture
The Skylake Architecture succeeds the Broadwell Architecture and aims for increased CPU and Graphics Performance, within the same Power Requirements. It includes support for DirectX 12.1, OpenCL 2.0 and OpenGL 4.4, as well as DDR4 Memory Support.
The GPU Codenamed GT3-E offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 2 ROPs.


GPU
The Central Unit Initially Runs at 350MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory: Speed
The Operating Memory Clock depends at which speed the System's RAM is running and which Memory Type is installed and is ultimately limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 933MHz for DDR3 and 1067MHz for DDR4.
Depending on whether or not the System's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit Memory Interface.
An addition to the Iris Graphics is the access to a L4 Cache of 64MB eDRAM which further increases the Memory Performance.


Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies according to the System. The GPU may reserve up to 1.7GB.


Performance
Because Performance depends heavily on the Memory Bandwidth, it may vary heavily from System to System.
Best Case Scenario, expect Performance Identical to a dedicated GeForce 930M.


System Suggestions
Intel Iris Graphics 550 Mobile is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
