    I've seen some WEI scores.

    Well virtually there are some over-accelerated items on the score list but the graphics is still limited to opengl 2.0 and dx9 even for Win7 or Win8 VM's if you get pretty high scores is because the host also gets high scores be it Mac or Pc.

    The better the host runs, the better the guest will run. The same VM on i7 + GTX 690 will have better scores than it on older dual core + Cheap Onboard Graphics.

    Then also we need to keep in mind that we have VT enabled to increase VM performance so the same VM will run badly or not at all on older host machine without VT.

    Alright no problem.
    Different users have different solutions. The most important thing is that you use something that you're used to and that works best.

    Thanks. I am pretty used to it now--finished install yesterday. It seems to work incredibly well--way better than my old laptop.

Hi there Since we are booting directly into a VHD this topic isn't really about Virtualisation per se -- so whether this post should be moved to Virtualisation --leave that for the Mods. Seems to me that running W8 from a VHD directly (I.E no HOST OS installed) would be really efficient and...
