In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 550 XGL are noticeably better than the Intel 82915G.

The 82915G has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The 82915G was released over a year more recently than the Quadro4 550 XGL, and so the 82915G 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 82915G has 122 MB more video memory than the Quadro4 550 XGL, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Quadro4 550 XGL has superior memory performance.

The Quadro4 550 XGL has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 82915G, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro4 550 XGL is marginally better than the 82915G.

The Quadro4 550 XGL has 2 Shader Processing Units and the 82915G has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro4 550 XGL is 1 and the actual shader performance of the 82915G is 0. The Quadro4 550 XGL having 1 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro4 550 XGL delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the 82915G.

The 82915G requires 17 Watts to run but there is no entry 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.Intel 82915G comes embedded on the Pentium 4, Pentium D and Celeron D CPUs and features an Integrated GPU called Intel GMA 900.
It only supports DirectX up to 9.0c so DirectX 10/11 games aren't (hardware) supported. The performance depends on the CPU it's embedded since Pentium 4 only supports DDR and Celeron D supports DDR2. Therefore, the memory bandwidth is quite different.
Today's modern games are unplayable, even at the lowest settings.
