In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon 9250 are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon HD 2100.

The Radeon HD 2100 was released over three years more recently than the Radeon 9250, and so the Radeon HD 2100 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon 9250 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 128 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 2100 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

Both the Radeon HD 2100 and the Radeon 9250 have 4 Shader Processing Units. 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 ReviewRadeon HD 2100 is an integrated GPU on the AMD 740G Chipset.
It's based on the RS740 Core and offers 4 Pixel Shaders and 4 ROPs on a 64-bit memory interface of standard DDR2. The central unit runs, commonly, at up to 400MHz and the memory clock's operating speed depends on the system RAM's speed.
Radeon HD 2100's performance depends on the users system configuration which will define the operating memory clock's speed and on the desktop manufacturer which decides its central unit's speed.
Its overall performance is very low and not comparable to the dedicated Radeon HD 2350. DirectX 10 & 11 games aren't supported.
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.
