In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 3300 are massively better than the Nvidia Quadro4 550 XGL.

The Radeon HD 3300 has a 430 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the Quadro4 550 XGL. This results in the Radeon HD 3300 providing 1.7 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since the Radeon HD 3300 supports up to DirectX 10.

The Radeon HD 3300 has a 430 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro4 550 XGL and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon HD 3300 providing 1.7 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. The Radeon HD 3300 supports up to DirectX 10, so pixeling performance is not particularly relevant for this GPU. It would be relevant for comparing the Quadro4 550 XGL with other old GPUs, but in this case it is probably safe to say that the Radeon HD 3300 is superior.

The Radeon HD 3300 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro4 550 XGL, and so the Radeon HD 3300 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 Radeon HD 3300 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 Radeon HD 3300 has 40. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro4 550 XGL is 1 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 3300 is 18. The Radeon HD 3300 having 17 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 3300 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro4 550 XGL.

The Radeon HD 3300 transistor size technology is 95 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro4 550 XGL. This means that the Radeon HD 3300 is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro4 550 XGL. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Radeon HD 3300 should consume less power 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.Radeon HD 3300 is an integrated GPU on the AMD 790GX Chipset which is based on the 55nm, second unified shader architecture, R600.
It's based on the RS780D Core and offers 40 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs a 32-bit memory interface of either DDR2 or GDDR3. The central unit runs, commonly, at up to 700MHz and the memory clock's operating speed depends on the system RAM's speed.
Radeon HD 3300's performance depends on the users system configuration which will define the operating memory clock's speed and on the desktop manufacturer which decides its central unit's speed.
Therefore, Radeon HD 3300 may offer similar performance to Radeon HD 3450 (700+MHz & GDDR3 - never better due to lesser driver support) or very limited performance (300MHz & DDR2). DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
