In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon 9250 are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon HD 2350 Pro.

The HD 2350 was released over a year more recently than the Radeon 9250, and so the HD 2350 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon 9250.

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 HD 2350 has 128 MB more video memory than the Radeon 9250, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the HD 2350 also has superior memory performance overall.

The HD 2350 has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon 9250, which means that the memory performance of the HD 2350 is marginally better than the Radeon 9250.

The Radeon HD 2350 Pro has 40 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon 9250 has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 2350 is 16 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon 9250 is 1. The HD 2350 having 15 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 2350 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon 9250.

The Radeon HD 2350 Pro requires 20 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon 9250. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD 2350.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 2350 Pro is an entry-level GPU based on the 65nm variant of the second unified shader architecture, R600.
It's based on the RV610 Core and offers 40 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs a 64-bit memory interface of standard DDR2. The central unit runs at 400MHz and the memory clock runs at up to 400MHz.
Today's games only playable at unattractive resolutions and using low (most likely) or medium (maybe) presets. Its performance, is however, quite superior to the integrated Radeon HD 2100. DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
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.
