In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X800 SE are massively better than the Nvidia Quadro4 550 XGL.

The Radeon X800 SE was released over a year more recently than the Quadro4 550 XGL, and so the Radeon X800 SE 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 Radeon X800 SE has 192 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 Radeon X800 SE also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon X800 SE has 48 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro4 550 XGL, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon X800 SE is noticeably better than the Quadro4 550 XGL.

The Quadro4 550 XGL has 2 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon X800 SE has 12. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro4 550 XGL is 1 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon X800 SE is 3. The Radeon X800 SE having 2 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon X800 SE delivers a noticeably 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.The Radeon X800 'R430'-based 110 nanometer series was introduced at the end of 2004 along with ATI's new X850 cards. The X800 was designed to replace the position X700 XT failed to secure, with 12 pipelines and a 256-bit RAM bus. The card more than surpassed the 6600GT with performance similar to that of the GeForce 6800. A close relative, the new X800 XL, was positioned to dethrone NVIDIA's GeForce 6800 GT with higher memory speeds and a full 16 pipelines to boost performance. R430 was unable to reach high clock speeds, being mainly designed to reduce the cost per GPU, and so a new top-of-the-line core was still needed. The new high-end R4x0-generation arrived with the X850 series, equipped with various core tweaks for slightly higher performance than the 'R420'-based X800 series. The 'R480'-based X850 line was available in 3 forms: the X850 Pro, the X850 XT, and the X850 XT Platinum Edition, and was built on the reliable high-performance 130 nm Low-K process.
