In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 550 XGL are marginally better than the AMD FireGL V3100.

The FireGL V3100 was released over a year more recently than the Quadro4 550 XGL, and so the FireGL V3100 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 FireGL V3100 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. This is supported by the fact that the FireGL V3100 also has superior memory performance overall.

The memory bandwidth of the Quadro4 550 XGL and the FireGL V3100 are the same, which means the Quadro4 550 XGL and the FireGL V3100 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the Quadro4 550 XGL and the FireGL V3100 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.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the FireGL V3100, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage 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.The FireGL line is designed for multimedia content creation programs, such as 3DS Max, mechanical engineering design software such as Solidworks, and civil engineering architectural software such as Chief Architect, whereas Radeon counterparts are suited towards video games. FireGL drivers were built with maximum image quality and pixel precision, with CAD specific functionalities such as the recently introduced AutoDetection Technology to tune the parameters inside the driver to achieve maximum performance for predefined list of software. However, because the drivers are also based on the Catalyst drivers made for the Radeon line, it makes them suitable for gaming, at the expense of probable compatibility issues with the very latest games due to the age of the drivers, with FireGL cards in theory pushing more data than their Radeon gaming counterparts
The ATI FireGL range of video cards, renamed to FirePro 3D in late 2008, is the series specifically for CAD (Computer Aided Design) and DCC (Digital Content Creation) software, usually found in workstations.
