In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 4250 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9300 GE.

The Radeon HD 4250 has a 20 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 9300 GE, but the GeForce 9300 GE has 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon HD 4250. As a result, the GeForce 9300 GE exhibits a 2.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Radeon HD 4250. 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 20 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce 9300 GE, but both GPUs exhibit the same Pixel Fill Rate. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon HD 4250 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 9300 GE, and so the Radeon HD 4250 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 9300 GE.

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 and the GeForce 9300 GE have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce 9300 GE has 8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 4250, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 9300 GE is marginally better than the Radeon HD 4250.

The Radeon HD 4250 has 40 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 9300 GE has 8. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 4250 is 15 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9300 GE is 4. The Radeon HD 4250 having 11 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 9300 GE performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 4250 transistor size technology is 10 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9300 GE. This means that the Radeon HD 4250 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9300 GE. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Radeon HD 4250 should consume less power than the GeForce 9300 GE.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce 9300 GE, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the Radeon HD 4250.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon 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.
It had previously been thought that NVIDIA had decided to drop the G and NV nomenclature for a D (for Desktop) nomenclature on their processors. Following the D is the generation number and the target market indicator. NVIDIA's official designations for target markets include Mainstream, Performance, and Enthusiast. For example, the D9E indicates a 9th generation Desktop GeForce video card for the Enthusiast market[1]. However, NVIDIA has actually forked their codenames into those of graphics processors, and those of graphics cards. The GPU cores have kept the prefix 'G' and future versions will include the prefix 'GT'; whereas the actual cards are now codenamed as D, generation number and target market.
