In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i5 2310 are massively better than the AMD Radeon 9250.

The HD i5 2310 was released over three years more recently than the Radeon 9250, and so the HD i5 2310 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 i5 2310 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 i5 2310 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i5 2310 requires 95 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon 9250.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewHD i5 2310 is specific version of Intel HD Graphics 2000 that is built into the 'Intel Core i5 2310' processor. You can only play most of the latest games like Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Saints Row The Third, Battlefield 3 on the lowest settings, but you might experience a small lag. Less demanding games will run from medium to high 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.
