In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 4290 are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 1300.

The Radeon HD 4290 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 1300, and so the Radeon HD 4290 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro FX 1300 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 4290 and the Quadro FX 1300 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Quadro FX 1300 has 8.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 4290, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 1300 is marginally better than the Radeon HD 4290.

The Radeon HD 4290 has 40 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 1300 has 3. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 4290 is 18 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 1300 is 1. The Radeon HD 4290 having 17 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 1300 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Quadro FX 1300 requires 55 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 4290. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the Quadro FX 1300, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the Radeon HD 4290.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 4290 (IGP) is an integrated GPU on the AMD 890GX Chipset.
It's based on the RS880D 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 700MHz and the memory clock's operating speed depends on the system RAM's speed.
Radeon HD 4290'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 4290, even if paired with DDR3 won't offer similar performance to the dedicated Radeon HD 4350. DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
The Quadro line of GPU cards emerged in an effort at market segmentation by NVIDIA. In introducing Quadro, NVIDIA was able to charge a premium for essentially the same graphics hardware in professional markets, and direct resources to properly serve the needs of those markets. To differentiate their offerings, NVIDIA used driver software and firmware to enable features vital to segments of the workstation market; e.g., high performance anti-aliased lines and two-sided lighting were reserved for the Quadro product. In addition, improved support through a certified driver program was put in place. These features were of little value in the gaming markets that NVIDIA's products already sold to, but prevented high end customers from using the less expensive products. This practice continues even today although some products use higher capacity faster memory.
