In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce4 Ti 4800 SE are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro4 550 XGL.

The Ti 4800 has a 5 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the Quadro4 550 XGL. This results in the Ti 4800 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 Ti 4800 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 Ti 4800 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 Ti 4800 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 Ti 4800 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Ti 4800 has 1.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro4 550 XGL, which means that the memory performance of the Ti 4800 is marginally better than the Quadro4 550 XGL.

The Quadro4 550 XGL has 2 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce4 Ti 4800 SE 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 Ti 4800 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 Ti 4800 takes the edge.

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.GeForce4 Ti 4800 SE is part of the GeForce4 GPUS released by NVIDIA in 2002. Only compatible with DirectX 8.1 or less and with a max memory of 128 MB, it can't play today's games.
Still, games before 2004 should be fully playable at max settings.
