In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 780 XGL are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 4 MX 440 AGP 8X.

The Quadro4 780 XGL was released less than a year after the 4 MX, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The Quadro4 780 XGL and the GeForce 4 MX 440 AGP 8X have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the Quadro4 780 XGL and the GeForce 4 MX 440 AGP 8X are the same, which means the Quadro4 780 XGL and the 4 MX have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The Quadro4 780 XGL has 4 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 4 MX 440 AGP 8X has 2. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewQuadro4 780 XGL is a professional graphics card that will deliver similar gaming performance to GeForce4 Ti 4400, though worse due to the lack of support for gaming drivers.GeForce 4 MX 440 AGP 8X is a variant of the GeForce 4 MX 440 that's connected via AGP 8X interface and features a tiny bit more memory bandwidth which might not even affect its performance, overall.
