In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon X1300 256MB are massively better than the AMD Radeon Xpress 1200 Series.

The Xpress 1200 was released over a year more recently than the Radeon X1300 256MB, and so the Xpress 1200 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon X1300 256MB.

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 X1300 256MB has 256 MB video memory, but the Xpress 1200 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

Both the Radeon Xpress 1200 Series and the Radeon X1300 256MB have 4 Shader Processing Units. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the Radeon X1300 256MB, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the Xpress 1200.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewATI's 'R520' core (codenamed Fudo) is the foundation for a line of DirectX 9.0c and OpenGL 2.0 3D accelerator X1000 video cards. It is ATI's first major architectural overhaul since the 'R300' core and is highly optimized for Shader Model 3.0. The Radeon X1000 series using the core was introduced on October 5, 2005, and competed primarily against nVidia's GeForce 7000 series. ATI released the successor to the R500 series with the R600 series on May 14, 2007. ATI does not provide official support for any X1000 series cards for Windows 7Radeon X1300 256MB is an entry-level GPU based on the 90nm variant of the R500 architecture.
It's based on the RV515 Core and offers 4 Pixel Shaders, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs, on a 128-bit of standard DDR. The central unit runs at 450MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 250MHz.
Radeon X1300 is not much more powerful than R300 and R400 based Radeon X1050 GPUs and so 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.
