In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 4250 are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro4 580 XGL.

The Radeon HD 4250 has a 260 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the Quadro4 580 XGL. This results in the Radeon HD 4250 providing 1 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since the Radeon HD 4250 supports up to DirectX 10.1.

The Radeon HD 4250 has a 260 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro4 580 XGL and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon HD 4250 providing 1 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. The Radeon HD 4250 supports up to DirectX 10.1, so pixeling performance is not particularly relevant for this GPU. It would be relevant for comparing the Quadro4 580 XGL with other old GPUs, but in this case it is probably safe to say that the Radeon HD 4250 is superior.

The Radeon HD 4250 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro4 580 XGL, 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 Quadro4 580 XGL 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 448 MB more video memory than the Quadro4 580 XGL, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Quadro4 580 XGL has superior memory performance.

The Quadro4 580 XGL has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 4250, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro4 580 XGL is marginally better than the Radeon HD 4250.

The Quadro4 580 XGL has 2 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 4250 has 40. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro4 580 XGL is 1 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 4250 is 15. The Radeon HD 4250 having 14 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 4250 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro4 580 XGL.

The Radeon HD 4250 transistor size technology is 95 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro4 580 XGL. This means that the Radeon HD 4250 is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro4 580 XGL. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Radeon HD 4250 should consume less power than the Quadro4 580 XGL.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewQuadro4 580 XGL is a professional graphics card that will deliver similar gaming performance to GeForce4 MX 460, though worse due to the lack of support for gaming drivers, lower memory bandwidth and reduced frame buffer size.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.
