In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 4350 1GB are significantly better than the Intel Q43 Express Chipset.

The HD 4350 was released less than a year after the Q43 Express Chipset, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 HD 4350 has 1024 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 HD 4350 has 80 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 HD 4350 1GB requires 20 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 HD 4350, 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.
With all the latest features, the ATI Radeon™ HD 4350 graphics card delivers the performance you need to take your high-definition experience to the next level at home, work and play. Add this graphics card to your PC and watch Blu-ray movies and HD content play with incredible visual fidelity, and view digital photos with over 1 billion colors2. Enjoy unprecedented levels of graphics realism and play the latest games with support for Microsoft DirectX® 10.1. Do it all with break-through efficiency that doesn’t compromise performance.
