In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 4 MX 440 AGP 8X are marginally better than the AMD Radeon 9250.

The Radeon 9250 was released over a year more recently than the 4 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 4 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 GeForce 4 MX 440 AGP 8X and the Radeon 9250 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The 4 MX has 1.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon 9250, which means that the memory performance of the 4 MX is marginally better than the Radeon 9250.

The GeForce 4 MX 440 AGP 8X has 2 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon 9250 has 4. 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 ReviewGeForce 4 MX 440 AGP 8X is a variant of the GeForce 4 MX 440 that's connected via AGP 8X interface and features a tiny bit more memory bandwidth which might not even affect its performance, overall.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.
