In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 980 XGL are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 4 MX 440.

The Quadro4 980 XGL was released less than a year after the 4 MX, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 980 XGL and the GeForce 4 MX 440 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Quadro4 980 XGL has 2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 4 MX, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro4 980 XGL is marginally better than the 4 MX.

The Quadro4 980 XGL has 4 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 4 MX 440 has 2. 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, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewQuadro4 980 XGL is a professional graphics card that will deliver similar gaming performance to GeForce4 Ti 4600, though worse due to the lack of support for gaming drivers.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....
