In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 580 XGL are massively better than the Nvidia Riva TNT2 Pro.

The Quadro4 580 XGL was released over three years more recently than the Riva TNT2 Pro, and so the Quadro4 580 XGL is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Riva TNT2 Pro 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 580 XGL has 32 MB more video memory than the Riva TNT2 Pro, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro4 580 XGL also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro4 580 XGL has 0.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Riva TNT2 Pro, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro4 580 XGL is marginally better than the Riva TNT2 Pro.

Both the Quadro4 580 XGL and the Riva TNT2 Pro have 2 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the Quadro4 580 XGL is 1 and by the Riva TNT2 Pro is 0. Knowing that the shader performance of the Quadro4 580 XGL is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewQuadro4 580 XGL is a professional graphics card that will deliver similar gaming performance to GeForce4 MX 460, though worse due to the lack of support for gaming drivers, lower memory bandwidth and reduced frame buffer size.The RIVA TNT2 was a graphics processing unit manufactured by Nvidia starting in early 1999. The chip is codenamed "NV5" because it is the 5th graphics chip design by Nvidia, succeeding the RIVA TNT (NV4). RIVA is an acronym for Real-time Interactive Video and Animation accelerator. The "TNT" suffix refers to the chip's ability to work on two texels at once (TwiN Texel). Nvidia removed RIVA from the name later in the chip's lifetime.
