In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 780 XGL are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro4 550 XGL.

The Quadro4 780 XGL has a 5 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the Quadro4 550 XGL. This results in the Quadro4 780 XGL providing 1.1 GTexel/s better texturing performance. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 10 or higher, so Texture Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The Quadro4 780 XGL has a 5 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro4 550 XGL, but both GPUs exhibit the same Pixel Fill Rate. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 9 or higher, so Pixel Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The Quadro4 780 XGL was released less than a year after the Quadro4 550 XGL, 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 780 XGL 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 Quadro4 780 XGL also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro4 780 XGL has 1.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro4 550 XGL, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro4 780 XGL is marginally better than the Quadro4 550 XGL.

The Quadro4 550 XGL has 2 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro4 780 XGL has 4. 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, the Quadro4 780 XGL has 1.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate and 1.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth, but the has GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate. Although the GPUs are very similar in performance, the Quadro4 780 XGL takes the edge.
