In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 550 XGL are very slightly better than the Nvidia Quadro4 380 XGL.

The Quadro4 380 XGL has a 5 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro4 550 XGL, but both GPUs exhibit the same Texture Fill Rate. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 10 or higher, so Texture Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The Quadro4 380 XGL 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.

Both the Quadro4 380 XGL and the Quadro4 550 XGL were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

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 380 XGL 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 Quadro4 380 XGL also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro4 380 XGL has 0.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro4 550 XGL, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro4 380 XGL is marginally better than the Quadro4 550 XGL.

Both the Quadro4 380 XGL and the Quadro4 550 XGL have 2 Shader Processing Units. 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 two GPUs have extremely similar stats, so any gaming performance difference would most likely be negligible.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewQuadro4 380 XGL is a professional graphics card that will deliver similar gaming performance to GeForce4 MX 440.Quadro4 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.
