In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 are marginally better than the AMD Mobility Radeon HD 3430.

The Radeon HD was released less than a year after the NVS 140M, 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 Mobility Radeon HD 3430 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 and the Mobility Radeon HD 3430 are the same, which means the NVS 140M and the Radeon HD have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The Radeon HD has 40 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 Mobility Radeon HD 3430 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.
The ATI Mobility Radeon? HD 3000 Series of discrete graphics allow you to experience the power of HD with graphics processing designed for how you work and play. Advance to the next generation of HD game performance and lifelike realism thanks to Microsoft? DirectX? 10.1 capabilities and PCI Express? 2.0 support for fast throughput and superior overall system performance. Watch the latest Blu-ray and HD-DVD videos in full-HD 1080p image resolution off your graphics processor and reduce demands on your CPU. Enjoy breakthrough energy efficiency with superb performance-per-watt delivering exceptional battery life.
