In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro4 550 XGL.

The 7600 GS was released over three years more recently than the Quadro4 550 XGL, and so the 7600 GS 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 7600 GS 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 7600 GS also has superior memory performance overall.

The 7600 GS has 22.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro4 550 XGL, which means that the memory performance of the 7600 GS is slightly better than the Quadro4 550 XGL.

The Quadro4 550 XGL has 2 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition has 12. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro4 550 XGL is 1 and the actual shader performance of the 7600 GS is 5. The 7600 GS having 4 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the 7600 GS delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro4 550 XGL.

The GeForce 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition requires 27 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Quadro4 550 XGL. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the 7600 GS, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for 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.GeForce 7600 GS Asus Silent Edition is a special edition of the GeForce 7600 GS. See the page of the standard edition for more information about it.
The biggest feature is the reduced noise that went from average to almost none and according to Asus the "Splendid video enhancement technology detects the activation and usage of video applications and automatically optimizes image quality for the best visual results". No gaming optimizations were included and so the performance, when gaming, is exactly like the standard edition.
