In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon 9250 are massively better than the AMD Rage 128 Pro.

The Radeon 9250 was released over three years more recently than the Rage 128 Pro, and so the Radeon 9250 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Rage 128 Pro 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 Radeon 9250 has 96 MB more video memory than the Rage 128 Pro, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Radeon 9250 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon 9250 has 0.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Rage 128 Pro, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon 9250 is marginally better than the Rage 128 Pro.

The Rage 128 Pro has 2 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon 9250 has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the Rage 128 Pro is 0 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon 9250 is 1. The Radeon 9250 having 1 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon 9250 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Rage 128 Pro.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewLater, ATI developed a successor to the original Rage 128, called the Rage 128 Pro. This chip carried several enhancements, including an enhanced triangle setup engine that doubled geometry throughput to eight million triangles/s, better texture filtering, DirectX 6.0 texture compression, AGP 4, DVI support, and a Rage Theater chip for composite and S-Video TV-in. This chip was used on the gamer-oriented Rage Fury Pro boards and the business-oriented Xpert 2000 PRO.The Radeon R200 is the second generation of Radeon graphics chips from ATI Technologies. The architecture features 3D acceleration based upon Microsoft Direct3D 8.0 and OpenGL 1.3, a major improvement in features and performance compared to the preceding Radeon R100 design. The GPU also includes 2D GUI acceleration, video acceleration, and multiple display outputs. 'R200' refers to the development codename of the initially released GPU of the generation. It is the basis for a variety of other succeeding products.
