In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon 9250 are very slightly better than the Intel 945 Express Family.

The 945 Express Family was released over a year more recently than the Radeon 9250, and so the 945 Express Family is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon 9250.

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 945 Express Family has 128 MB more video memory than the Radeon 9250, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Radeon 9250 has superior memory performance.

The Radeon 9250 has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 945 Express Family, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon 9250 is marginally better than the 945 Express Family.

The Radeon 9250 has 4 Shader Processing Units but the 945 Express Family does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe Intel Graphics Media Accelerator, or GMA, is Intel's current line of integrated graphics processors built into various motherboard chipsets.
These integrated graphics products allow a computer to be built without a separate graphics card, which can reduce cost, power consumption and noise. They are commonly found on low-priced notebook and desktop computers as well as business computers, which do not need high levels of graphics capability. 90% of all PCs sold have integrated graphics. They rely on the computer's main memory for storage, which imposes a performance penalty, as both the CPU and GPU have to access memory over the same bus.
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.
