In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 550 XGL are very slightly better than the Intel 945GM Express Family.

The 945GM Express Family was released over three years more recently than the Quadro4 550 XGL, and so the 945GM Express Family is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro4 550 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 945GM Express Family has 64 MB more video memory than the Quadro4 550 XGL, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Quadro4 550 XGL has superior memory performance.

The Quadro4 550 XGL has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 945GM Express Family, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro4 550 XGL is marginally better than the 945GM Express Family.

The Quadro4 550 XGL has 2 Shader Processing Units but the 945GM Express Family does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

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 Intel Graphics Media Accelerator, or GMA, is Intel's current line of integrated graphics processors built into various motherboard chipsets.
These integrated graphics products allow a computer to be built without a separate graphics card, which can reduce cost, power consumption and noise. They are commonly found on low-priced notebook and desktop computers as well as business computers, which do not need high levels of graphics capability. 90% of all PCs sold have integrated graphics. They rely on the computer's main memory for storage, which imposes a performance penalty, as both the CPU and GPU have to access memory over the same bus.
