In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X550 Series are marginally better than the AMD Radeon 9250.

The Radeon X550 Series was released over a year more recently than the Radeon 9250, and so the Radeon X550 Series is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon 9250.

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 X550 Series has 128 MB more video memory than the Radeon 9250, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Radeon X550 Series also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon X550 Series has 4.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon 9250, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon X550 Series is marginally better than the Radeon 9250.

Both the Radeon 9250 and the Radeon X550 Series have 4 Shader Processing Units. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe Radeon R200 is the second generation of Radeon graphics chips from ATI Technologies. The architecture features 3D acceleration based upon Microsoft Direct3D 8.0 and OpenGL 1.3, a major improvement in features and performance compared to the preceding Radeon R100 design. The GPU also includes 2D GUI acceleration, video acceleration, and multiple display outputs. 'R200' refers to the development codename of the initially released GPU of the generation. It is the basis for a variety of other succeeding products.The 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.
