NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M vs NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M vs NVIDIA Quadro NVS 120M
NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M► remove
The Nvidia Quadro NVS 150M is a business graphics adapater for notebooks. It is based on the GeForce 9300M GS consumer graphics card but features special drivers which are optimized for business applications. A short list of the applications which are certified for the NVS line can be found here (including MS Office, Exceed, Notes, McAffee, pcAnywhere, Bloomberg, Reuters, Tradestation).
The gaming performance should be similar to the GeForce 9300M GS and therefore only suited for less demanding games with low details. Still the business drivers are not optimized for games and may therefore show a worse performance (or some bugs). The memory is clocked either with 700 MHz (DDR3) or 400 MHz (DDR2) which is noticable slower.
Compared to the Quadro NVS 150M, the 160M features a higher clock speed and supports higher resolutions up to 1920x1200 (digital) or 2048x1536 (analog).
As the 9300M GS, the Quadro NVS 160M also supports PureVideo HD to decode HD videos with the graphics chip (and save current).

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.
