In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 840M 2GB are massively better than the Nvidia Quadro NVS 510M.

The GeForce 840M 2GB was released over three years more recently than the Quadro NVS 510M, and so the GeForce 840M 2GB is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro NVS 510M when running the latest games.

The GeForce 840M 2GB has 1024 MB more video memory than the Quadro NVS 510M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce 840M 2GB also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce 840M 2GB has 16 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro NVS 510M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 840M 2GB is slightly better than the Quadro NVS 510M.

The GeForce 840M 2GB has 384 Shader Processing Units but the Quadro NVS 510M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 840M 2GB requires 33 Watts to run and the Quadro NVS 510M requires 45 Watts. The Quadro NVS 510M requires 12 Watts more than the GeForce 840M 2GB to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Quadro NVS 510M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 840M 2GB.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce 840M 2GB is a Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The Maxwell architecture features many improvements and among them is the extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GM108 which has 3 SM activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1029MHz and goes up to 1124MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The Frame Buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The memory clock operates at 1001MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.2 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 33W, it will only be equipped in average sized notebooks.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate its performance is over 20% faster than the older GeForce GT 740M. Therefore, it should match GeForce GT 750M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a notebook with GeForce 840M 2GB.
Quadro NVS 510M is a high-end 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 510M, however, isn't one of them but compared to the previous models, it delivers much better performance. The performance should be enough to handle demanding games like, Crysis 2, on the lowest settings possible but games like Metro 2033 are probably unplayable at the lowest settings.
