In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 4290 are noticeably better than the Intel G43 Express Chipset.

The Radeon HD 4290 was released over a year more recently than the G43 Express Chipset, and so the Radeon HD 4290 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the G43 Express Chipset.

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 4290 has 128 MB video memory, but the G43 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 4290 has 40 Shader Processing Units but the G43 Express Chipset does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The G43 Express Chipset requires 24 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 4290.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel G43 Express Chipset comes embedded on the Core 2 Quad/Core 2 Duo CPUS and features an Integrated GPU called Intel GMA X4500.
Due to its characteristics (e.g. Shared Memory) the performance is very limited but might be enough to play today's games at low settings excluding, however, very demanding games like Metro 2033 or The Witcher II, that are unplayable, even at the lowest settings.
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.
