In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel GM965 Express Chipset are massively better than the AMD Mobility Radeon Xpress 1250.

The GM965 Express Chipset was released less than a year after the Radeon Xpress, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 Mobility Radeon Xpress 1250 and the GM965 Express Chipset have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GM965 Express Chipset has 4.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon Xpress, which means that the memory performance of the GM965 Express Chipset is marginally better than the Radeon Xpress.

The Radeon Xpress has 4 Shader Processing Units but the GM965 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GM965 Express Chipset requires 14 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon Xpress.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewMobility Radeon Xpress 1250 is a weak integrated graphics card and successor to Mobility Radeon X300.
It offers 4 Pixel Shader, TMUs and ROPs. It uses system memory of DDR2 type clocked up to 400MHz and can reserve up to 512MB.
Not only DirectX 10+ games aren't supported, even modest DirectX 9 games will have trouble running.
Intel GM965 Express Chipset comes with most Core 2 Duo Mobile and with an integrated GMA X3100. Its performance is horrible and not recommended to any of today's games.
