In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 780 XGL are marginally better than the AMD Radeon HD 4200.

The Radeon HD 4200 has a 225 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro4 780 XGL, but the Quadro4 780 XGL has 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon HD 4200. As a result, the Quadro4 780 XGL exhibits a 0.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Radeon HD 4200. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 10 or higher, so Texture Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The Radeon HD 4200 has a 225 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro4 780 XGL and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon HD 4200 providing 0.9 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. The Radeon HD 4200 supports up to DirectX 10.1, so pixeling performance is not particularly relevant for this GPU. It would be relevant for comparing the Quadro4 780 XGL with other old GPUs, but in this case it is probably safe to say that the Radeon HD 4200 is superior.

The Radeon HD 4200 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro4 780 XGL, and so the Radeon HD 4200 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro4 780 XGL 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 Radeon HD 4200 has 384 MB more video memory than the Quadro4 780 XGL, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Quadro4 780 XGL has superior memory performance.

The Quadro4 780 XGL has 4.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 4200, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro4 780 XGL is marginally better than the Radeon HD 4200.

The Quadro4 780 XGL has 4 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 4200 has 40. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro4 780 XGL is 1 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 4200 is 13. The Radeon HD 4200 having 12 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro4 780 XGL performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 4200 transistor size technology is 95 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro4 780 XGL. This means that the Radeon HD 4200 is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro4 780 XGL. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Radeon HD 4200 should consume less power than the Quadro4 780 XGL.

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.Radeon HD 4200 (IGP) is an integrated GPU on the AMD 880G Chipset.
It's based on the RS880 Core and offers 40 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs a 32-bit memory interface of DDR2. The central unit runs, commonly, at up to 500MHz and the memory clock's operating speed depends on the system RAM's speed.
Radeon HD 4200's performance depends on the users system configuration which will define the operating memory clock's speed and on the desktop manufacturer which decides its central unit's speed.
Therefore, Radeon HD 4200 may offer similar performance to Radeon HD 4250/4290 but never close to the dedicated Radeon HD 4350. DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
