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

The 4 MX was released over a year more recently than the Vanta 16MB, 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 Vanta 16MB.

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 Vanta 16MB, 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 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Vanta 16MB, which means that the memory performance of the 4 MX is marginally better than the Vanta 16MB.

Both the Vanta 16MB and the GeForce 4 MX 440 have 2 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the 4 MX is 1 and by the Vanta 16MB is 1. Knowing that the shader performance of the 4 MX is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe NVIDIA Vanta is a low-cost, 128-bit TwiN Texel, highly integrated 3D graphics processor, designed specifically for value-conscious users. Leveraging the NVIDIA TNT architecture, NVIDIA Vanta delivers breakthrough 3D and industry-leading 2D graphics performance, making it ideal for today's basic desktop PC. The NVIDIA Vanta comes in 4-16MB configurations. 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....
