In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 are very slightly better than the Intel HD Graphics Mobile.

The HD Graphics Mobile was released over a year more recently than the NVS 140M, and so the HD Graphics Mobile is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the NVS 140M.

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 NVS 140M has 256 MB video memory, but the HD Graphics Mobile does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics Mobile has 12 Shader Processing Units but the NVS 140M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics Mobile requires 35 Watts to run and the Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 requires 10 Watts. The HD Graphics Mobile requires 25 Watts more than the NVS 140M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the HD Graphics Mobile to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the NVS 140M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewIntel HD Graphics Mobile is an integrated GPU in the Arrandale CPUs released by Intel.
It can have up to ~1.7GB of system RAM. The CPU's highest memory supported is 1066MHz. Therefore, the max memory clock is 533MHz.
The performance depends a lot from CPU to CPU, as it can come clocked at different speeds and reach different values using Turbo Boost.
Identify your CPU and see if the specific version of this Intel that comes with your CPU is added. Example: if you have the CPU Core i7-620M, you have the GPU HD i7 M620.
Quadro NVS 140M is a business card with support for special drivers that are certified for professional applications like Microsoft Office Suite, Hummingbird Exceed, Lotus Notes, etc. It's part of the Quadro NVS Mobile Series released by NVIDIA, in 2006/2007/2010.
Though business cards have no driver support for games, some of them deliver astonishing performance (e.g. Quadro 6000, Tesla C2075). Quadro NVS 140M, however, isn't one of them.
The performance is enough for all old games and some modern games like the Fifa Series but it's still incapable of playing today's games like Crysis 2 and Metro 2033, even at the lowest settings.
