In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 550 XGL are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce2 Ultra.

The Quadro4 550 XGL was released over a year more recently than the GeForce2 Ultra, and so the Quadro4 550 XGL is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce2 Ultra.

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 GeForce2 Ultra have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce2 Ultra has 0.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro4 550 XGL, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce2 Ultra is marginally better than the Quadro4 550 XGL.

The Quadro4 550 XGL has 2 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce2 Ultra 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.GeForce2 Ultra is part of the GeForce2 Series released by NVIDIA in 2000/2001. With very few dedicated memory and only DirectX 7.0 (and less) support, even games from 2002 will require reduced settings. Therefore, it can't play today's current games.
