In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Mobility Radeon X1400 are marginally better than the Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3.

The NVS 140M was released over a year more recently than the Mobility Radeon X1400, and so the NVS 140M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Mobility Radeon X1400.

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 128 MB more video memory than the Mobility Radeon X1400, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the NVS 140M also has superior memory performance overall.

The NVS 140M has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Mobility Radeon X1400, which means that the memory performance of the NVS 140M is marginally better than the Mobility Radeon X1400.

The Mobility Radeon X1400 has 2 Shader Processing Units but the NVS 140M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 requires 10 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Mobility Radeon X1400.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewQuadro 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.
