In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 550 XGL are massively better than the AMD Rage 128 Ultra 16MB.

The Quadro4 550 XGL was released over three years more recently than the 128 Ultra, and so the Quadro4 550 XGL is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the 128 Ultra 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 has 48 MB more video memory than the 128 Ultra, 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 2.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 128 Ultra, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro4 550 XGL is marginally better than the 128 Ultra.

The Quadro4 550 XGL has 2 Shader Processing Units but the 128 Ultra does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.
