In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro NVS 300 are massively better than the AMD Radeon 9250.

The Quadro NVS 300 was released over three years more recently than the Radeon 9250, and so the Quadro NVS 300 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon 9250 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 Quadro NVS 300 has 384 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 Quadro NVS 300 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro NVS 300 has 9.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon 9250, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro NVS 300 is marginally better than the Radeon 9250.

The Quadro NVS 300 has 16 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon 9250 has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro NVS 300 is 22 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon 9250 is 1. The Quadro NVS 300 having 21 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro NVS 300 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon 9250.

The Quadro NVS 300 requires 18 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon 9250. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the Quadro NVS 300.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe NVIDIA® NVS™ 300 high resolution, multi-display business graphics solution, designed for small and standard form factor systems, delivers reliable hardware and software for a stable business environment. Tested on leading business applications, NVS 300 is capable of driving two VGA, single link DVI, DisplayPort or HDMI displays. With NVIDIA Mosaic™ and NVIDIA nView® technologies built in, you can span and efficiently manage your entire Windows desktop across multiple displays. The 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.
