In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 550 XGL are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 2 MX 400 64MB.

The Quadro4 550 XGL was released less than a year after the 2 MX, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 550 XGL and the GeForce 2 MX 400 64MB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Quadro4 550 XGL has 1.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 2 MX, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro4 550 XGL is marginally better than the 2 MX.

Both the Quadro4 550 XGL and the GeForce 2 MX 400 64MB 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 2 MX 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.

The GeForce 2 MX 400 64MB requires 4 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Quadro4 550 XGL.

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.GeForce 2 MX 400 64MB is part of the GeForce2 Series released by NVIDIA in 2000/2001. With very few dedicated memory and only DirectX 7.0 (and less) support, even games from 2002 will require reduced settings. Therefore, it can't play today's current games.
