In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 550 XGL are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon 9250.

The Radeon 9250 was released over a year more recently than the Quadro4 550 XGL, and so the Radeon 9250 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 9250 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 Radeon 9250 also has superior memory performance overall.

The memory bandwidth of the Quadro4 550 XGL and the Radeon 9250 are the same, which means the Quadro4 550 XGL and the Radeon 9250 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The Quadro4 550 XGL has 2 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon 9250 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, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

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 R200 is the second generation of Radeon graphics chips from ATI Technologies. The architecture features 3D acceleration based upon Microsoft Direct3D 8.0 and OpenGL 1.3, a major improvement in features and performance compared to the preceding Radeon R100 design. The GPU also includes 2D GUI acceleration, video acceleration, and multiple display outputs. 'R200' refers to the development codename of the initially released GPU of the generation. It is the basis for a variety of other succeeding products.
