In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 4250 are significantly better than the AMD Radeon X1300 256MB.

The Radeon HD 4250 was released over three years more recently than the Radeon X1300 256MB, 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 Radeon X1300 256MB 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 256 MB more video memory than the Radeon X1300 256MB, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Radeon X1300 256MB has superior memory performance.

The Radeon X1300 256MB has 4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 4250, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon X1300 256MB is marginally better than the Radeon HD 4250.

The Radeon HD 4250 has 40 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon X1300 256MB has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 4250 is 15 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon X1300 256MB is 1. The Radeon HD 4250 having 14 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon X1300 256MB performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the Radeon X1300 256MB, 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.
Radeon X1300 256MB is an entry-level GPU based on the 90nm variant of the R500 architecture.
It's based on the RV515 Core and offers 4 Pixel Shaders, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs, on a 128-bit of standard DDR. The central unit runs at 450MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 250MHz.
Radeon X1300 is not much more powerful than R300 and R400 based Radeon X1050 GPUs and so its performance is relatively limited - even for DirectX 9 based games. As it's not based on a Shader-Unified architecture, both DirectX 10 & 11 games aren't supported.
