In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 3000 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 4 MX 440.

The Quadro FX 3000 was released over a year more recently than the 4 MX, and so the Quadro FX 3000 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the 4 MX.

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 Quadro FX 3000 has 128 MB more video memory than the 4 MX, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro FX 3000 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro FX 3000 has 10.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 4 MX, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 3000 is slightly better than the 4 MX.

The Quadro FX 3000 has 3 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.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the Quadro FX 3000.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe Quadro line of GPU cards emerged in an effort at market segmentation by NVIDIA. In introducing Quadro, NVIDIA was able to charge a premium for essentially the same graphics hardware in professional markets, and direct resources to properly serve the needs of those markets. To differentiate their offerings, NVIDIA used driver software and firmware to enable features vital to segments of the workstation market; e.g., high performance anti-aliased lines and two-sided lighting were reserved for the Quadro product. In addition, improved support through a certified driver program was put in place. These features were of little value in the gaming markets that NVIDIA's products already sold to, but prevented high end customers from using the less expensive products. This practice continues even today although some products use higher capacity faster memory.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....
