In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Pentium G630 are massively better than the Nvidia Quadro4 550 XGL.

The HD Pentium G630 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro4 550 XGL, and so the HD Pentium G630 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 Quadro4 550 XGL has 64 MB video memory, but the HD Pentium G630 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Quadro4 550 XGL has 2 Shader Processing Units and the HD Pentium G630 has 6. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro4 550 XGL is 1 and the actual shader performance of the HD Pentium G630 is 16. The HD Pentium G630 having 15 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD Pentium G630 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than 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.Intel HD Pentium G630 is a specific version of the Intel HD Graphics that comes embedded on the CPU 'Pentium G630 2.7GHz'.
It's based on the Sandy Bridge architecture, meaning it features 6 SPUs. The GPU's clock is initially set at 850MHz and can go to up to 1100MHz. The max memory type supported is DDR3 1066MHz - therefore, the GPU's max memory clock is 533MHz.
Intel HD Pentium G630's gaming performance is very limited and so most games will have to be played at very reduced settings while extremely demanding games are probably out of the question.
