In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce Go 6800 ultra are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3.

The NVS 140M was released over a year more recently than the Go 6800, 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 Go 6800.

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 Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 and the GeForce Go 6800 ultra have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Go 6800 has 24 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the NVS 140M, which means that the memory performance of the Go 6800 is slightly better than the NVS 140M.

Both the Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 and the GeForce Go 6800 ultra have 0 Shader Processing Units. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

The Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 requires 10 Watts to run and the GeForce Go 6800 ultra requires 89 Watts. The Go 6800 requires 79 Watts more than the NVS 140M to run. The difference is significant enough that the Go 6800 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the NVS 140M.

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.
NVIDIA GeForce Go 6800 Ultra is the most powerful GPU of the whole Go 6000 Series.
It has up to 256MB of dedicated memory and it uses DDR3 memory type.
The performance would have been great if it didn't heat way too much when handling demanding games. The power consumption (89 watts) is also colossal, compared to the performance it delivers.
