In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i3 530 are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 4250.

Both the Radeon HD 4250 and the HD i3 530 were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

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 512 MB video memory, but the HD i3 530 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 4250 has 40 Shader Processing Units but the HD i3 530 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

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.
HD i3 530 is the specific version of the 'GMA/Intel Media Graphics Accelerator' that comes with the CPU 'Core i3-530 2.9GHz'. With no dedicated memory, it uses system memory up to 1 GB on Windows XP and 1.7GB on Windows Vista/7. Unlike the second gen 'Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000', very demanding games might not run at all and only very old games will run on high settings smoothly.
