In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce G 103M are noticeably better than the Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3.

The GeForce G 103M was released over a year more recently than the NVS 140M, and so the GeForce G 103M 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 GeForce G 103M has 256 MB more video memory than the NVS 140M, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the NVS 140M has superior memory performance.

The NVS 140M has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce G 103M, which means that the memory performance of the NVS 140M is marginally better than the GeForce G 103M.

The GeForce G 103M 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 GeForce G 103M transistor size technology is 15 nm (nanometers) smaller than the NVS 140M. This means that the GeForce G 103M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the NVS 140M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GeForce G 103M should consume less power than the NVS 140M.

The Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 requires 10 Watts to run and the GeForce G 103M requires 14 Watts. The GeForce G 103M requires 4 Watts more than the NVS 140M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce G 103M 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.
GeForce G 103M is an entry-class level GPU of the 100M Series released by NVIDIA, in 2009.
Since it only supports DirectX up to 10, games that use DirectX 11 are not supported and unplayable.
It uses the architecture 'G98', which is the same of the GeForce 9300M GS but comes with higher clock frequencies and it's manufactured at 55nm instead of 65nm, so the performance is a little better and even though it supports DirectX 10, even most forgiving games that use it, will only be playable at low settings. Very demanding games like Metro 2033 or The Witcher 2 are certainly unplayable, even at the lowest settings and even demanding games like Crysis 2 and Skyrim V might be unplayable at low settings. Even less demanding, modern, games, like Sims 3, require reduced settings to run smoothly.
