In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon 9250 are marginally better than the Intel 82915G.

The 82915G has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The 82915G was released less than a year after the Radeon 9250, 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 82915G has 58 MB more video memory than the Radeon 9250, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Radeon 9250 has superior memory performance.

The Radeon 9250 has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 82915G, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon 9250 is marginally better than the 82915G.

Both the 82915G and the Radeon 9250 have 4 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the Radeon 9250 is 1 and by the 82915G is 1. Knowing that the shader performance of the Radeon 9250 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The 82915G requires 17 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon 9250.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel 82915G comes embedded on the Pentium 4, Pentium D and Celeron D CPUs and features an Integrated GPU called Intel GMA 900.
It only supports DirectX up to 9.0c so DirectX 10/11 games aren't (hardware) supported. The performance depends on the CPU it's embedded since Pentium 4 only supports DDR and Celeron D supports DDR2. Therefore, the memory bandwidth is quite different.
Today's modern games are unplayable, even at the lowest settings.
The Radeon R200 is the second generation of Radeon graphics chips from ATI Technologies. The architecture features 3D acceleration based upon Microsoft Direct3D 8.0 and OpenGL 1.3, a major improvement in features and performance compared to the preceding Radeon R100 design. The GPU also includes 2D GUI acceleration, video acceleration, and multiple display outputs. 'R200' refers to the development codename of the initially released GPU of the generation. It is the basis for a variety of other succeeding products.
