Since the launch of the 890GX chipset, AMD rolled out the 880G chipset as a less-expensive solution for motherboard vendors and offers a stripped-down graphics processor of what is found in the 890GX and is branded as the ATI Radeon HD 4250. Today we have a few benchmarks of the Radeon HD 4250 (880G) under Linux for your viewing pleasure.
For this testing we used an AMD Athlon II X3 425 triple-core processor, 4GB of DDR3 system memory, a 250GB Seagate ST3250310AS SATA HDD, and a Dell S2409W display. The motherboards used for testing was the previously-reviewed MSI 890GXM-G65 for the Radeon HD 4290 testing and then for the 880G-based motherboard was an ASRock 880G Extreme 3. The Radeon HD 4250 graphics processor is clocked at 560MHz while the HD 4290 is running at 700MHz.
