In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 4290 are significantly better than the Intel GMA 3100.

The Radeon HD 4290 was released over a year more recently than the GMA 3100, and so the Radeon HD 4290 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GMA 3100.

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 GMA 3100 has 128 MB more video memory than the Radeon HD 4290, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Radeon HD 4290 has superior memory performance.

The memory bandwidth of the Radeon HD 4290 and the GMA 3100 are the same, which means the Radeon HD 4290 and the GMA 3100 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The Radeon HD 4290 has 40 Shader Processing Units and the GMA 3100 has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 4290 is 18 and the actual shader performance of the GMA 3100 is 51. The GMA 3100 having 33 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon HD 4290 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GMA 3100 requires 17 Watts to run but there is no entry 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 Intel Graphics Media Accelerator, or GMA, is Intel's current line of integrated graphics processors built into various motherboard chipsets. These integrated graphics products allow a computer to be built without a separate graphics card, which can reduce cost, power consumption and noise. They are commonly found on low-priced notebook and desktop computers as well as business computers, which do not need high levels of graphics capability. 90% of all PCs sold have integrated graphics. They rely on the computer's main memory for storage, which imposes a performance penalty, as both the CPU and GPU have to access memory over the same bus.
