The NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M is a business entry-level graphics card for laptop. It is based on the GeForce 8500M GT consumer graphics card and designed for the business sector providing enhanced compatibility and stability. Regarding performance it should be comparable to a 8400M GT, but, might rate a little lower, because of the drivers that emphasize on stability. Therefore, the NVS 140M provides only entry-level 3D performance.
DirectX 10 medium class business graphic card, which is optimized for compatibility and stability. The graphic card seems to have the same core like the 8700M series and therefore shows good performance data.
A particularity of the graphic card are the "Unified Shaders". There don't exist any more dedicated pixel- and vertex shaders but 16 so called Stream processors maintain the upcomming graphic work (which was done by the pixel and vertex Shaders, up to now).
The memory clock of the Quadro NVS 320M depends on the implemented memory type: 400 MHz with GDDR2 and 700 MHz with GDDR3.
