In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics Desktop (Sandy Bridge) are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro4 780 XGL.

The Graphics Desktop has a 575 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro4 780 XGL, but the Quadro4 780 XGL has 7 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics Desktop. As a result, the Quadro4 780 XGL exhibits a 1.3 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Graphics Desktop. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 10 or higher, so Texture Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The Graphics Desktop has a 575 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro4 780 XGL, but the Quadro4 780 XGL has 3 more Render Output Units than the Graphics Desktop. As a result, the Quadro4 780 XGL exhibits a 0.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the Graphics Desktop. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 9 or higher, so Pixel Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The Graphics Desktop was released over three years more recently than the Quadro4 780 XGL, and so the Graphics Desktop is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro4 780 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 Quadro4 780 XGL has 128 MB video memory, but the Graphics Desktop does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics Desktop (Sandy Bridge) has 6 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro4 780 XGL has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics Desktop is 24 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro4 780 XGL is 1. The Graphics Desktop having 23 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Graphics Desktop delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro4 780 XGL.

The Graphics Desktop transistor size technology is 128 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro4 780 XGL. This means that the Graphics Desktop is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro4 780 XGL. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Graphics Desktop should consume less power than the Quadro4 780 XGL.

The HD Graphics Desktop (Sandy Bridge) requires 65 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Quadro4 780 XGL.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel HD Graphics Desktop (Sandy Bridge) are integrated graphics in the budget Celeron and Pentium Sandy Bridge Desktop processors.
Their performance depends on the processor they are integrated on, as the latter defines the Base and Boost Clock, as well as on the SYSTEM RAM, which defines the operating memory clock, and whether the GPU accesses a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface.
More details to be added soon.
Quadro4 780 XGL is a professional graphics card that will deliver similar gaming performance to GeForce4 Ti 4400, though worse due to the lack of support for gaming drivers.
