In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 2000 Desktop are massively better than the Nvidia Quadro4 550 XGL.

The Graphics 2000 has a 580 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro4 550 XGL, but the Quadro4 550 XGL has 3 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 2000. As a result, the Quadro4 550 XGL exhibits a 0.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Graphics 2000. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 10 or higher, so Texture Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The Graphics 2000 has a 580 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro4 550 XGL, but the Quadro4 550 XGL has 3 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 2000. As a result, the Quadro4 550 XGL exhibits a 0.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the Graphics 2000. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 9 or higher, so Pixel Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The Graphics 2000 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro4 550 XGL, and so the Graphics 2000 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 Graphics 2000 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 Graphics 2000 Desktop has 6. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro4 550 XGL is 1 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 2000 is 32. The Graphics 2000 having 31 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Graphics 2000 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro4 550 XGL.

The Graphics 2000 transistor size technology is 118 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro4 550 XGL. This means that the Graphics 2000 is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro4 550 XGL. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Graphics 2000 should consume less power than the Quadro4 550 XGL.

The HD Graphics 2000 Desktop requires 95 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Quadro4 550 XGL. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 2000, 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.Overview
Intel HD Graphics 2000 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Desktop Sandy Bridge Processors.

Architecture
The Sandy Bridge GT1 Core includes support for DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 3.1. Additionally, it also offers better Video Encoding and Decoding Performance, when compared to its Predecessor.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT2 which offers 6 Shader Processing Units, 1 TMUs and 1 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 850MHz and goes up to 1350MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from System to System. Typically, the GPU reserves 1.7GB. Depending on whether or not the system's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface. The operating memory clock also depends on which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 667MHz.
It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.

Performance
The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce 8400 GS.
Select the Specific Version you have of this Graphics Card According to your Processor for a more Accurate Rank and experience using our tools.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD Graphics 2000 Desktop.
