In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 250X are massively better than the Intel HD Graphics 4400 Desktop.

The Graphics 4400 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The Radeon R7 250X was released less than a year after the Graphics 4400, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon R7 250X has 2048 MB video memory, but the Graphics 4400 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon R7 250X has 640 Shader Processing Units and the HD Graphics 4400 Desktop has 80. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R7 250X is 517 and the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4400 is 0. The Radeon R7 250X having 517 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon R7 250X delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Graphics 4400.

The Graphics 4400 transistor size technology is 6 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon R7 250X. This means that the Graphics 4400 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon R7 250X.

The Radeon R7 250X requires 80 Watts to run but there is no entry for the HD Graphics 4400 Desktop. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon R7 250X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R7 250X is a fast-middle-class Graphics Card based on the Graphics Core Next architecture. It offers the Cape Verde XT GPU.
The Cape Verde XT Core is a GCN 1.1 GPU and was first seen on Radeon HD 7770 and then re-used in the OEM only Radeon HD 8760.
It offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 128-bits memory interface of fast GDDR5.
Radeon R7 250X comes clocked at 950MHz (though there might be some 1GHz versions) and has its operating memory clock set at 1125MHz. The rated TDP board is of 80W and the release price around $99.
This card should come in 1GB and 2GB versions, though both will offer the same performance.
Its performance has proven to be exactly like Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition (if clocked at 1GHz) and thus this card is not suited for 1080p gaming but it can handle 720p with ease. The 950MHz versions will be around 3% slower.
Intel HD Graphics 4400 Desktop is a variant of Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop, for ULV processors.
It features 20 Execution Units (80 Shader Processing Units) and its central-unit speed will range between XXXMHz and 1150MHz (Turbo Boost) and that the fastest memory supported is DDR3-1600 meaning its memory-clock will operate at 800MHz, at the most.
Compared to Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop, its performance is only slightly lower but its TDP is significantly lower.
