In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FireGL V3100 are massively better than the AMD Radeon Xpress 1200 Series.

The Xpress 1200 was released over a year more recently than the FireGL V3100, 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 FireGL V3100.

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 FireGL V3100 has 128 MB video memory, but the Xpress 1200 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The FireGL V3100 has 2 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon Xpress 1200 Series has 4. 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 300 Watts for the FireGL V3100.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe FireGL line is designed for multimedia content creation programs, such as 3DS Max, mechanical engineering design software such as Solidworks, and civil engineering architectural software such as Chief Architect, whereas Radeon counterparts are suited towards video games. FireGL drivers were built with maximum image quality and pixel precision, with CAD specific functionalities such as the recently introduced AutoDetection Technology to tune the parameters inside the driver to achieve maximum performance for predefined list of software. However, because the drivers are also based on the Catalyst drivers made for the Radeon line, it makes them suitable for gaming, at the expense of probable compatibility issues with the very latest games due to the age of the drivers, with FireGL cards in theory pushing more data than their Radeon gaming counterparts
The ATI FireGL range of video cards, renamed to FirePro 3D in late 2008, is the series specifically for CAD (Computer Aided Design) and DCC (Digital Content Creation) software, usually found in workstations.
ATI'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 7
