In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 4250 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 4 MX 440.

The Radeon HD 4250 was released over three years more recently than the 4 MX, and so the Radeon HD 4250 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the 4 MX 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 Radeon HD 4250 has 384 MB more video memory than the 4 MX, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the 4 MX has superior memory performance.

The 4 MX has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 4250, which means that the memory performance of the 4 MX is marginally better than the Radeon HD 4250.

The Radeon HD 4250 has 40 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 4 MX 440 has 2. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 4250 is 15 and the actual shader performance of the 4 MX is 1. The Radeon HD 4250 having 14 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 4250 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the 4 MX.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 4250 (IGP) is an integrated GPU on the AMD 880G Chipset.
It's based on the RS880 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 560MHz and the memory clock's operating speed depends on the system RAM's speed.
Radeon HD 4250'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 4250 may offer similar performance to Radeon HD 4290 (and even Radeon HD 4200) but never close to the dedicated Radeon HD 4350. DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
GeForce4 MX 440 is part of the GeForce4 GPUS released by NVIDIA in 2002. Only compatible with DirectX 7 or less and with a max memory of 128 MB, it can't play today's games. Still, games before 2003 should be fully playable at max settings....
