In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Mobility Radeon HD 540v are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3.

The Radeon HD was released over a year more recently than the NVS 140M, and so the Radeon HD 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 Radeon HD 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 Radeon HD also has superior memory performance overall.

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

The Radeon HD has 80 Shader Processing Units but the NVS 140M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the NVS 140M. This means that the Radeon HD is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the NVS 140M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Radeon HD should consume less power than the NVS 140M.

The Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 requires 10 Watts to run and the Mobility Radeon HD 540v requires 13 Watts. The Radeon HD requires 3 Watts more than the NVS 140M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon HD 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.
Mobility Radeon HD 540v is an entry-level GPU based on the 55nm, Terascale 1 architecture and therefore not related to other Mobility HD 5000 Series GPUs.
It's based on the M92 Core and offers 80 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs, on 64-bit memory interface of standard GDDR3. The central unit runs at 550MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 800MHz. It consumes no more than 13 Watt.
Benchmarks indicate modern demanding games of 2007-2010, such as Crysis, BF2 and Metro 2033 were only playable at low settings smoothly, using a 1024x768 resolution. Therefore, today's modern demanding games should be playable on the low preset, using a 1024x768 resolution and extremely demanding modern games such as Crysis 3 might be unplayable.
As based on the Terascale 1 architecture, DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
