In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce FX 5700 are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce 4 MX 440.

The GeForce FX 5700 was released over a year more recently than the 4 MX, and so the GeForce FX 5700 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 GeForce FX 5700 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 GeForce FX 5700 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce FX 5700 has 0.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 4 MX, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce FX 5700 is marginally better than the 4 MX.

The GeForce FX 5700 has 4 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 4 MX 440 has 2. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce FX 5700 is 2 and the actual shader performance of the 4 MX is 1. The GeForce FX 5700 having 1 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce FX 5700 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the 4 MX.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe top-to-bottom family of NVIDIA GeForce FX GPUs provide both high-performance gaming for enthusiasts and best-in-class features for mainstream users. Whether you're a bleeding-edge gamer who desires the most advanced gaming technology available, or a PC user in search of the perfect combination of power, performance, and value--GeForce FX solutions deliver. 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....
