In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD Graphics 2500 Desktop are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 4250.

The Graphics 2500 has a 90 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 4250, but the Radeon HD 4250 has 3 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 2500. As a result, the Radeon HD 4250 exhibits a 1.5 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Graphics 2500. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Graphics 2500 has a 90 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 4250, but the Radeon HD 4250 has 3 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 2500. As a result, the Radeon HD 4250 exhibits a 1.5 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the Graphics 2500. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Graphics 2500 was released over a year more recently than the Radeon HD 4250, and so the Graphics 2500 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon HD 4250.

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 512 MB video memory, but the Graphics 2500 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 2500 Desktop has 24 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 4250 has 40. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 2500 is 76 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 4250 is 15. The Graphics 2500 having 61 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Graphics 2500 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD 4250.

The Graphics 2500 transistor size technology is 33 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 4250. This means that the Graphics 2500 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 4250. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Graphics 2500 should consume less power than the Radeon HD 4250.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel HD Graphics 2500 DEsktop are the successors of Intel HD Graphics 2000.
They come embedded on the new Intel Core i-5 Ivy Bridge CPUS.
The new features include DirectX 11 support, Shader Version of 5.0 and openGL Version of up to 4.0.
They offer 6 Execution Units (24 Shader Processing Units) and are manufactured with a 22nm technology.
Benchmarks indicate that today's games can be played at the lowest settings smoothly.
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.
