In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9400M.

The GeForce 9400M was released over a year more recently than the NVS 140M, and so the GeForce 9400M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the NVS 140M.

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 9400M 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 11.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 9400M, which means that the memory performance of the NVS 140M is slightly better than the GeForce 9400M.

Both the Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 and the GeForce 9400M 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 9400M requires 12 Watts. The GeForce 9400M requires 2 Watts more than the NVS 140M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 9400M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than 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.
It had previously been thought that NVIDIA had decided to drop the G and NV nomenclature for a D (for Desktop) nomenclature on their processors. Following the D is the generation number and the target market indicator. NVIDIA's official designations for target markets include Mainstream, Performance, and Enthusiast. For example, the D9E indicates a 9th generation Desktop GeForce video card for the Enthusiast market[1]. However, NVIDIA has actually forked their codenames into those of graphics processors, and those of graphics cards. The GPU cores have kept the prefix 'G' and future versions will include the prefix 'GT'; whereas the actual cards are now codenamed as D, generation number and target market.
