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 8800M GS.

The GeForce 8800M GS has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The GeForce 8800M GS 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 GeForce 8800M GS has 64 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 11.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 8800M GS, which means that the memory performance of the NVS 140M is slightly better than the GeForce 8800M GS.

Both the Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 and the GeForce 8800M GS 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 but there is no entry for the GeForce 8800M GS.

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 GeForce 8 Series, a computer graphics processing unit, is the eighth generation of NVIDIA's GeForce line. The third major GPU architecture developed at NVIDIA, the GeForce 8 represents the company's first unified shader architecture. It competed primarily against ATI's Radeon HD 2000-series cards.
There has been, at times, controversy over the naming of GeForce 8 series chips, including due to previous-generation chips being repackaged with minor changes (or possibly none at all) with the new names implying they are derived from the newly-introduced GPU chip design featured by the flagship products.
