In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8180 are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3.

The Radeon HD 8180 was released over three years more recently than the NVS 140M, and so the Radeon HD 8180 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the NVS 140M 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 NVS 140M has 256 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 8180 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 8180 has 128 Shader Processing Units but the NVS 140M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 8180 transistor size technology is 52 nm (nanometers) smaller than the NVS 140M. This means that the Radeon HD 8180 is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the NVS 140M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Radeon HD 8180 should consume less power than the NVS 140M.

The Radeon HD 8180 requires 4 Watts to run and the Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 requires 10 Watts. The NVS 140M requires 6 Watts more than the Radeon HD 8180 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the NVS 140M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon HD 8180.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 8180 is an integrated graphics card on some of the Kabini APUs.
It is based on the Graphics Core Next Architecture and shares the main system memory of up to 533MHz, on a 128-bit memory interface, whereas the memory bandwidth and performance will depend heavily on the laptop configuration.
The codenamed Kalindi LP Core offers 128 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs and comes optimized for low power consumption.
Even assuming the best combination possible, expect its performance to be slower than an Intel HD 2000 and thus the card is hardly suited for any gaming. Its biggest advantage is its ridiculously lower power consumption.
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.
