    Hyper V and Games Problem


    Hi, i have heard that Hyper V in Windows 8 can make games drop FPS. I am experiencing this issue (GTA 4) but i cannot turn of hyper V, it is already unchecked. I cant turn it on either because my processor doesn't support it.
    Is there a way around this?

    Thanks

    If you processor doesn't support it....how can it be enabled? Why would you want to play games in Hyper-V...you're all ready splitting up your system resources to setup and run Hyper-V. So I'm sitting here scratching my head....wonder what the heck are you talking about.
