In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce G 210M are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3.

The GeForce G 210M was released over a year more recently than the NVS 140M, and so the GeForce G 210M 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 210M has 256 MB more video memory than the NVS 140M, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce G 210M also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce G 210M has 1.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the NVS 140M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce G 210M is marginally better than the NVS 140M.

The GeForce G 210M has 16 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 210M transistor size technology is 40 nm (nanometers) smaller than the NVS 140M. This means that the GeForce G 210M is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the NVS 140M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GeForce G 210M should consume less power than the NVS 140M.

The Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 requires 10 Watts to run and the GeForce G 210M requires 14 Watts. The GeForce G 210M requires 4 Watts more than the NVS 140M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce G 210M 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 210M is an entry-class level GPU of the 200M Series released by NVIDIA in 2009/2010. The biggest hindrance it has is the fact that it only supports DirectX up to 10.1 so DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
It's based on the architecture 'GT218', same used on the entry GPUS of the desktop 200 Series. The performance is actually better than the desktop GeForce GT 210, thanks to the higher clock frequencies.
Demanding games like Crysis are only playable at the lowest settings while very demanding games are most likely, unplayable.
