In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 6370D are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 4290.

The Radeon HD 6370D was released over a year more recently than the Radeon HD 4290, and so the Radeon HD 6370D is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon HD 4290.

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 6370D has 384 MB more video memory than the Radeon HD 4290, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Radeon HD 6370D also has superior memory performance overall.

The memory bandwidth of the Radeon HD 6370D and the Radeon HD 4290 are the same, which means the Radeon HD 6370D and the Radeon HD 4290 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The Radeon HD 4290 has 40 Shader Processing Units but the Radeon HD 6370D does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 6370D requires 65 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 4290.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 6370D is an integrated GPU in one of AMD's processors. It's part of the middle class GPUS. It supports DirectX 11 and uses system memory and it only supports DDR3-1600 memory type.
At this moment, we do not know much about Radeon HD 6370D. However, considering the fact it uses shared memory and the limited memory size, the performance should be pretty close to the Intel HD 3000 (desktop) and therefore only capable of playing demanding games on the lowest settings, while very demanding games might not run at all.
All in all, even though it supports DirectX 11, most likely games that use it are unplayable to the lowest settings or only playable on the lowest settings because every game out there using DirectX 11 is either demanding or very demanding.
Radeon 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.
