In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 4250 are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon HD 4200.

The Radeon HD 4250 has a 60 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the Radeon HD 4200. This results in the Radeon HD 4250 providing 0.2 GTexel/s better texturing performance. 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 60 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 4200 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon HD 4250 providing 0.2 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. 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 less than a year after the Radeon HD 4200, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 and the Radeon HD 4200 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the Radeon HD 4250 and the Radeon HD 4200 are the same, which means the Radeon HD 4250 and the Radeon HD 4200 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the Radeon HD 4250 and the Radeon HD 4200 have 40 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the Radeon HD 4250 has 0.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate and 0.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, but the has GB/sec greater memory bandwidth. Although the GPUs are very similar in performance, the Radeon HD 4250 takes the edge.

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.
