In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Graphics Desktop and the Radeon HD 4250 are equal.

The Radeon HD 4250 has a 249 MHz higher core clock speed and 3 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics Desktop. This results in the Radeon HD 4250 providing 1.9 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Radeon HD 4250 has a 249 MHz higher core clock speed and 3 more Render Output Units than the Graphics Desktop. This results in the Radeon HD 4250 providing 1.9 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Graphics Desktop was released over three years more recently than the Radeon HD 4250, and so the Graphics Desktop is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon HD 4250 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 512 MB video memory, but the Graphics Desktop does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics Desktop (Bay Trail) has 4 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 4250 has 40. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics Desktop is 18 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 4250 is 15. The Graphics Desktop having 3 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Graphics Desktop delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD 4250.

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

The HD Graphics Desktop (Bay Trail) requires 10 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 4250.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel HD Graphics Desktop (Bay Trail) are integrated graphics in the low-end Atoms and nettop processors.

Their performance depends on the processor they are integrated on, as the latter defines the Base and Boost Clock, as well as on the SYSTEM RAM, which defines the operating memory clock, and whether the GPU accesses a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface.
The Graphics Card also shares the processor's L2 Cache of 4MB. Therefore, it reduces the need to resort to its memory bandwidth.

Best case scenario, the Intel HD Graphics Desktop (Bay Trail) perform only slightly below the Intel HD 2000 Graphics and so most modern demanding games will have to be played with the lowest settings, while some aren't even playable.
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.
