In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce2 Ultra are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce 4 MX 440.

The 4 MX was released over a year more recently than the GeForce2 Ultra, and so the 4 MX is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce2 Ultra.

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 64 MB more video memory than the GeForce2 Ultra, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce2 Ultra has superior memory performance.

The GeForce2 Ultra has 0.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 4 MX, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce2 Ultra is marginally better than the 4 MX.

The GeForce2 Ultra 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 ReviewGeForce2 Ultra is part of the GeForce2 Series released by NVIDIA in 2000/2001. With very few dedicated memory and only DirectX 7.0 (and less) support, even games from 2002 will require reduced settings. Therefore, it can't play today's current games.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....
