In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 4250 are significantly better than the AMD Radeon 3000.

The Radeon HD 4250 has a 60 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the Radeon 3000. This results in the Radeon HD 4250 providing 0.2 GTexel/s better texturing performance. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 10 or higher, so Texture Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The Radeon HD 4250 has a 60 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon 3000 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon HD 4250 providing 0.2 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon HD 4250 was released over a year more recently than the Radeon 3000, and so the Radeon HD 4250 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon 3000.

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 4250 has 512 MB video memory, but the Radeon 3000 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

Both the Radeon 3000 and the Radeon HD 4250 have 40 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the Radeon HD 4250 is 15 and by the Radeon 3000 is 15. Knowing that the shader performance of the Radeon HD 4250 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon 3000 (IGP) is an integrated GPU on the AMD 760G Chipset. It's manufactured with a 55nm technology but it's not based on the shader unified R600 architecture and therefore pixel and vertex shaders work separately (thus does not support DirectX 10).
It's based on the RS760 Core and offers 40 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs a 32-bit memory interface of standard DDR2. The central unit runs, commonly, at up to 500MHz and the memory clock's operating speed depends on the system RAM's speed.
Radeon 3000'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.
Radeon 3000 is related to Radeon HD 3200 but unlike the latter, does not offer DirectX 10 support. Both DirectX 10 and DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
Radeon HD 4250 (IGP) is an integrated GPU on the AMD 880G Chipset.
It's based on the RS880 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 560MHz and the memory clock's operating speed depends on the system RAM's speed.
Radeon HD 4250'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 4250 may offer similar performance to Radeon HD 4290 (and even Radeon HD 4200) but never close to the dedicated Radeon HD 4350. DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
