In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 550 XGL are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 4 MX 4000.

The 4 MX was released over a year more recently than the Quadro4 550 XGL, and so the 4 MX is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Quadro4 550 XGL.

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 4 MX 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 1.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 4 MX, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro4 550 XGL is marginally better than the 4 MX.

Both the Quadro4 550 XGL and the GeForce 4 MX 4000 have 2 Shader Processing Units. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

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.GeForce4 MX 4000 is part of the GeForce4 GPUS released by NVIDIA in 2002. Only compatible with DirectX 7 or less and with a max memory of 128 MB, it can't play today's games. Still, games before 2003 should be fully playable at max settings....
