In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 4250 are significantly better than the AMD Radeon 9500.

The Radeon HD 4250 was released over three years more recently than the Radeon 9500, 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 9500 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 9500, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Radeon 9500 has superior memory performance.

The Radeon 9500 has 4.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 4250, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon 9500 is marginally better than the Radeon HD 4250.

The Radeon 9500 has 4 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 4250 has 40. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon 9500 is 1 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 4250 is 15. The Radeon HD 4250 having 14 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon 9500 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe Radeon R300 (introduced August 2002) is the third generation of Radeon graphics chips from ATI Technologies. The line features 3D acceleration based upon Direct3D 9.0 and OpenGL 2.0, a major improvement in features and performance compared to the preceding Radeon R200 design. R300 was the first fully Direct3D 9-capable consumer graphics chip. The processors also include 2D GUI acceleration, video acceleration, and multiple display outputs. R300 refers to the development codename of the initially released GPU of the generation. R300 and its derivatives would form the basis for ATI's consumer and professional product lines for over 3 years. The integrated graphics processor based upon R300 is called Xpress 200.Radeon 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.
