Theoretically, the GeForce 920M should perform just a bit faster than the Radeon HD 4550 256MB in general. (explain)

GeForce 920M 14400 MB/sec
Radeon HD 4550 256MB 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (13%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 920M should be quite a bit (more or less 536%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 4550 256MB. (explain)

GeForce 920M 30528 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4550 256MB 4800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 25728 (536%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce 920M will be quite a bit (approximately 218%) better at FSAA than the Radeon HD 4550 256MB, and also should be capable of handling higher resolutions more effectively. (explain)

GeForce 920M 7632 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4550 256MB 2400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5232 (218%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
