In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 550 XGL are massively better than the Nvidia Riva TNT2.

The Quadro4 550 XGL was released over a year more recently than the Riva TNT2, 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 Riva TNT2.

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 Riva TNT2, 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 0.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Riva TNT2, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro4 550 XGL is marginally better than the Riva TNT2.

Both the Quadro4 550 XGL and the Riva TNT2 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 Riva TNT2 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.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.
