In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 4250 are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 1100.

The Radeon HD 4250 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 1100, and so the Radeon HD 4250 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro FX 1100 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 HD 4250 has 384 MB more video memory than the Quadro FX 1100, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Quadro FX 1100 has superior memory performance.

The Quadro FX 1100 has 5.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 4250, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 1100 is marginally better than the Radeon HD 4250.

The Radeon HD 4250 has 40 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 1100 has 11. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 4250 is 15 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 1100 is 5. The Radeon HD 4250 having 10 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 1100 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the Quadro FX 1100, 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.
The Quadro line of GPU cards emerged in an effort at market segmentation by NVIDIA. In introducing Quadro, NVIDIA was able to charge a premium for essentially the same graphics hardware in professional markets, and direct resources to properly serve the needs of those markets. To differentiate their offerings, NVIDIA used driver software and firmware to enable features vital to segments of the workstation market; e.g., high performance anti-aliased lines and two-sided lighting were reserved for the Quadro product. In addition, improved support through a certified driver program was put in place. These features were of little value in the gaming markets that NVIDIA's products already sold to, but prevented high end customers from using the less expensive products. This practice continues even today although some products use higher capacity faster memory.
