In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon 9250 are massively better than the AMD Rage 128 Ultra 16MB.

The Radeon 9250 was released over three years more recently than the 128 Ultra, 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 128 Ultra 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 112 MB more video memory than the 128 Ultra, 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 2.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 128 Ultra, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon 9250 is marginally better than the 128 Ultra.

The Radeon 9250 has 4 Shader Processing Units but the 128 Ultra does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewAMD desktop processors ignite the next generation of solutions. Whether it's playing games, cloud computing or editing home videos, enjoy a better experience with AMD multi-core processors.
Redefine the way you play on your desktop computer and take HD gaming to the extreme with the performance of ATI graphics cards from AMD.
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.
