In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon 9250 are marginally better than the Nvidia ION LE.

The ION LE was released over three years more recently than the Radeon 9250, and so the ION LE is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon 9250 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 9250 has 128 MB video memory, but the ION LE does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The ION LE has 16 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon 9250 has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the ION LE is 7 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon 9250 is 1. The ION LE having 6 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the ION LE delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon 9250.

The ION LE requires 20 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon 9250.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewNext-generation NVIDIA ION graphics energize your PC with over 10 times the performance of integrated graphics. Go beyond simple Internet browsing with a media-savvy ION GPU. Experience full 1080p video on sites like YouTube HD or from Blu-Ray discs. Play the most popular PC games like World of Warcraft or accelerate popular video and photo apps, boosting performance of editing and converting videos, face tagging photos, and much more. Only ION delivers the Windows 7 Home Premium experience including the rich 3D user interface. NVIDIA ION packs a premium graphics punch at a fraction of the size.The Radeon R200 is the second generation of Radeon graphics chips from ATI Technologies. The architecture features 3D acceleration based upon Microsoft Direct3D 8.0 and OpenGL 1.3, a major improvement in features and performance compared to the preceding Radeon R100 design. The GPU also includes 2D GUI acceleration, video acceleration, and multiple display outputs. 'R200' refers to the development codename of the initially released GPU of the generation. It is the basis for a variety of other succeeding products.
