In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro NVS 160M are very slightly better than the Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3.

The Quadro NVS 160M 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 160M and the Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 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 160M and the Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 are the same, which means the Quadro NVS 160M and the NVS 140M have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the Quadro NVS 160M and the Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 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 160M requires 12 Watts to run and the Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 requires 10 Watts. The Quadro NVS 160M requires 2 Watts more than the NVS 140M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Quadro NVS 160M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the NVS 140M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewQuadro NVS 160M 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 160M, 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.
