In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 8400M G.

The NVS 140M was released less than a year after the GeForce 8400M G, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 and the GeForce 8400M G have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The NVS 140M has 1.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 8400M G, which means that the memory performance of the NVS 140M is marginally better than the GeForce 8400M G.

The GeForce 8400M G has 8 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 and the GeForce 8400M G requires 10 Watts. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

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.
GeForce 8400M G is an entry-class level GPU part of the 8000M Series released by NVIDIA, in 2007.
Very demanding games(e.g. Metro 2033, The Witcher 2) and even demanding games (e.g. Crysis 2, Skyrim V)are most certainly unplayable. Moderate and less demanding games, like Call of Duty: Black Ops, might be playable smoothly at the lowest settings.
