In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 550 XGL are massively better than the AMD Rage 128 Pro.

The Quadro4 550 XGL was released over a year more recently than the Rage 128 Pro, and so the Quadro4 550 XGL is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Rage 128 Pro.

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 550 XGL has 32 MB more video memory than the Rage 128 Pro, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro4 550 XGL also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro4 550 XGL has 0.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Rage 128 Pro, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro4 550 XGL is marginally better than the Rage 128 Pro.

Both the Quadro4 550 XGL and the Rage 128 Pro have 2 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the Quadro4 550 XGL is 1 and by the Rage 128 Pro is 0. Knowing that the shader performance of the Quadro4 550 XGL is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewQuadro4 550 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, as well as a lower clocked central unit.Later, ATI developed a successor to the original Rage 128, called the Rage 128 Pro. This chip carried several enhancements, including an enhanced triangle setup engine that doubled geometry throughput to eight million triangles/s, better texture filtering, DirectX 6.0 texture compression, AGP 4, DVI support, and a Rage Theater chip for composite and S-Video TV-in. This chip was used on the gamer-oriented Rage Fury Pro boards and the business-oriented Xpert 2000 PRO.
