In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X700 Series are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 4250.

The Radeon HD 4250 was released over three years more recently than the Radeon X700 Series, 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 X700 Series 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 Radeon X700 Series, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Radeon X700 Series has superior memory performance.

The Radeon X700 Series has 11.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 4250, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon X700 Series is slightly better than the Radeon HD 4250.

The Radeon HD 4250 has 40 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon X700 Series has 8. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 4250 is 15 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon X700 Series is 2. The Radeon HD 4250 having 13 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon X700 Series performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

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 Radeon X800 'R430'-based 110 nanometer series was introduced at the end of 2004 along with ATI's new X850 cards. The X800 was designed to replace the position X700 XT failed to secure, with 12 pipelines and a 256-bit RAM bus. The card more than surpassed the 6600GT with performance similar to that of the GeForce 6800. A close relative, the new X800 XL, was positioned to dethrone NVIDIA's GeForce 6800 GT with higher memory speeds and a full 16 pipelines to boost performance. R430 was unable to reach high clock speeds, being mainly designed to reduce the cost per GPU, and so a new top-of-the-line core was still needed. The new high-end R4x0-generation arrived with the X850 series, equipped with various core tweaks for slightly higher performance than the 'R420'-based X800 series. The 'R480'-based X850 line was available in 3 forms: the X850 Pro, the X850 XT, and the X850 XT Platinum Edition, and was built on the reliable high-performance 130 nm Low-K process.
