In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 4 MX 440 are massively better than the AMD Rage 128 Ultra 16MB.

The 4 MX was released over three years more recently than the 128 Ultra, and so the 4 MX is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the 128 Ultra 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 4 MX has 112 MB more video memory than the 128 Ultra, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the 4 MX also has superior memory performance overall.

The 4 MX has 2.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 128 Ultra, which means that the memory performance of the 4 MX is marginally better than the 128 Ultra.

The 4 MX has 2 Shader Processing Units but the 128 Ultra does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewAMD desktop processors ignite the next generation of solutions. Whether it's playing games, cloud computing or editing home videos, enjoy a better experience with AMD multi-core processors.
Redefine the way you play on your desktop computer and take HD gaming to the extreme with the performance of ATI graphics cards from AMD.
GeForce4 MX 440 is part of the GeForce4 GPUS released by NVIDIA in 2002. Only compatible with DirectX 7 or less and with a max memory of 128 MB, it can't play today's games. Still, games before 2003 should be fully playable at max settings....
