In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon 9250 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 2 MX 100/200 32MB.

The Radeon 9250 was released over a year more recently than the 2 MX, and so the Radeon 9250 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the 2 MX.

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 2 MX, 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 1.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 2 MX, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon 9250 is marginally better than the 2 MX.

The GeForce 2 MX 100/200 32MB has 2 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon 9250 has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the 2 MX 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 2 MX.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce2 MX 100/200 32MB 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.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.
