In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i3 2120 are massively better than the AMD Radeon 9250.

The HD i3 2120 was released over three years more recently than the Radeon 9250, and so the HD i3 2120 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 HD i3 2120 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon 9250 has 4 Shader Processing Units but the HD i3 2120 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i3 2120 requires 65 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon 9250.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewHD i3 2100T is a specific version of the Intel HD 2000 Graphics that comes with the CPU 'Core i3-2100T 2.5GHz'. It uses the CPU's Level 3 Cache (up to 3 MB, in this case) + part of the RAM installed on the system up to a maximum of approximately 1.7GB for Vista/7 and 1 GB for XP. The Memory controller supports DDR3-1066 and DDR3-1333 and the Dynamic Frequency Technology of the processor can over-clock the graphics card clock from 850MHz to 1100MHz. Nevertheless it's still an integrated GPU with shared memory so its performance is very limited. Still, demanding games like Crysis 2 should still run on the lowest settings.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.
