In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel Q43 Express Chipset are significantly better than the AMD Radeon X1050.

The Q43 Express Chipset was released over a year more recently than the Radeon X1050, and so the Q43 Express Chipset is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon X1050.

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 X1050 has 128 MB video memory, but the Q43 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon X1050 has 4 Shader Processing Units but the Q43 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon X1050 requires 24 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Q43 Express Chipset. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Radeon X1050, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the Q43 Express Chipset.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel Q43 Express Chipset comes embedded on the Intel Core 2 Quad/Core 2 Duo CPUS and features an Integrated GPU called Intel GMA X4500.
Various Intel Chipsets come with the Intel GMA X4500 but this one (and the Q45) seem to deliver the best performance. However, due to its characteristics (e.g. Shared Memory) the performance is still very limited but might be enough to play today's games at low or medium settings excluding, however, very demanding games like Metro 2033 or The Witcher II, that are probably unplayable, even at the lowest settings.
Note 1: Intel GMA X4500 does support DirectX 10 but even the most forgiving games might be unplayable due to the demand level.
Radeon X1050 is an entry-level GFX based on the 110nm variant of the R300 architecture.
It's based on the RV370 Core and offers 4 Pixel Shaders, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs, on a 64-bit of standard DDR2. The central unit runs at 400MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 333MHz. Expect a TDP of up to 24 Watt.
Radeon X1050 is not related to the rest of the X1000 Series GPUs due to being based on the R300 architecture and not on the R500. Its performance is relatively limited - even for DirectX 9 based games. As it's not based on a Shader-Unified architecture, both DirectX 10 & 11 games aren't supported.
