In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 580 XGL are very slightly better than the Nvidia Quadro4 550 XGL.

The Quadro4 580 XGL has a 30 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the Quadro4 550 XGL. This results in the Quadro4 580 XGL providing 0.1 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 580 XGL has a 30 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro4 550 XGL and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Quadro4 580 XGL providing 0.1 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 9 or higher, so Pixel Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The Quadro4 580 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 550 XGL and the Quadro4 580 XGL have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the Quadro4 550 XGL and the Quadro4 580 XGL are the same, which means the Quadro4 550 XGL and the Quadro4 580 XGL have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the Quadro4 550 XGL and the Quadro4 580 XGL 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, the Quadro4 580 XGL has 0.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate and 0.1 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, but the has GB/sec greater memory bandwidth. Although the GPUs are very similar in performance, the Quadro4 580 XGL takes the edge.
