In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 2400 XT are massively better than the AMD Radeon 9250.

The HD 2400 XT was released over three years more recently than the Radeon 9250, and so the HD 2400 XT 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 HD 2400 XT has 128 MB more video memory than the Radeon 9250, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the HD 2400 XT also has superior memory performance overall.

The HD 2400 XT has 4.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon 9250, which means that the memory performance of the HD 2400 XT is marginally better than the Radeon 9250.

The Radeon HD 2400 XT has 40 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon 9250 has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 2400 XT is 26 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon 9250 is 1. The HD 2400 XT having 25 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 2400 XT delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon 9250.

The Radeon HD 2400 XT requires 25 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon 9250.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 2400 XT is an entry-level GPU based on the 65nm variant of the second unified shader architecture, R600.
It's based on the RV610 Core and offers 40 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs a 64-bit memory interface of standard GDDR3. The central unit runs at 650MHz and the memory clock runs at up to 500MHz. It's therefore a higher clocked Radeon HD 2400 Pro, paired with GDDR3 and should be considerably faster.
Today's games only playable at unattractive resolutions and using low (likely) or medium (maybe) presets. DirectX 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.
