In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 560 are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 4250.

The Radeon HD 4250 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 560, and so the Radeon HD 4250 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro FX 560 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 HD 4250 has 384 MB more video memory than the Quadro FX 560, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Quadro FX 560 has superior memory performance.

The Quadro FX 560 has 19.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 4250, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 560 is slightly better than the Radeon HD 4250.

The Quadro FX 560 has 12 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 4250 has 40. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 560 is 4 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 4250 is 15. The Radeon HD 4250 having 11 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 560 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Quadro FX 560 requires 30 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 4250.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewQuadro FX 560 is a professional Graphics Card with driver support for professional applications.
It's based on the G73 architecture (GL Core) and offers 12 Pixel Shaders, on a 128-bit memory interface of GDDR3.
It's related to desktop GeForce 7600 GT but should offer performance similar (though worse) to GeForce 7600 GS, due to the similarities.
Radeon HD 4250 (IGP) is an integrated GPU on the AMD 880G Chipset.
It's based on the RS880 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 560MHz and the memory clock's operating speed depends on the system RAM's speed.
Radeon HD 4250'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 4250 may offer similar performance to Radeon HD 4290 (and even Radeon HD 4200) but never close to the dedicated Radeon HD 4350. DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
