In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 4290 are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon X1300 PRO.

The Radeon HD 4290 was released over three years more recently than the Radeon X1300 PRO, and so the Radeon HD 4290 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon X1300 PRO 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 X1300 PRO has 128 MB more video memory than the Radeon HD 4290, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Radeon X1300 PRO also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon X1300 PRO has 6.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 4290, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon X1300 PRO is marginally better than the Radeon HD 4290.

The Radeon X1300 PRO has 4 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 4290 has 40. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon X1300 PRO is 2 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 4290 is 18. The Radeon HD 4290 having 16 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon X1300 PRO performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon X1300 PRO requires 31 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 4290.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon X1300 PRO is an entry-level GPU based on the 80nm variant of the R500 architecture.
It's based on the RV516 Core and offers 4 Pixel Shaders, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs, on a 128-bit of standard DDR. The central unit runs at 600MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 400MHz.
Radeon X1300 PRO offers higher clock frequencies than Radeon X1300 but it also consumes relatively more power. Its performance is relatively better than X1300 but today's modern games are still only playable at the lowest settings or unplayable at all. As it's not based on a Shader-Unified architecture, both DirectX 10 & 11 games aren't supported.
Radeon HD 4290 (IGP) is an integrated GPU on the AMD 890GX Chipset.
It's based on the RS880D Core and offers 40 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs a 32-bit memory interface of either DDR2 (more commonly) or DDR3. The central unit runs, commonly, at up to 700MHz and the memory clock's operating speed depends on the system RAM's speed.
Radeon HD 4290's performance depends on the users system configuration which will define the operating memory clock's speed and on the desktop manufacturer which decides its central unit's speed.
Therefore, Radeon HD 4290, even if paired with DDR3 won't offer similar performance to the dedicated Radeon HD 4350. DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
