In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Mobility Radeon HD 4550 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 memory bandwidth of the Mobility Radeon HD 4550 and the Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 are the same, which means the Radeon HD and the NVS 140M have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

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 Mobility Radeon HD 4550 requires 12 Watts to run and the Quadro NVS 140M 256MB GDDR3 requires 10 Watts. The Radeon HD requires 2 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 ReviewMobility Radeon HD 4550 is an entry-class level GPU part of the Mobility Radeon HD 4000 Series released by AMD in 2009/2010.
There are many versions available from GDDR3 (and DDR3) type to DDR2 and from a 64 bit bus to a 32 bit bus. This is the GDDR3 version with a 64 bits memory bus.
It only supports DirectX up to 10.1 so DirectX 11 games aren't supported. The performance should be enough to play demanding games like, Crysis 2, on the lowest settings but with unattractive resolutions while very demanding games, like Metro 2033, are probably unplayable to the lowest settings. Less demanding games should be playable on medium settings, depending on the resolution + DirectX version used.
Quadro 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.
