Hardware: Hackintosh, Pentium Dual-Core E2160 @ 2.4GHz, 2GB DDR2-667 Dual-Channel, 160G 7200rpm 8M HDD, nVidia GeForce 7300GT with 256MB GDDR3, Gigabyte-EG31MF-S2 Motherboard

Software: Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.5, Parallels Desktop 3 Build 5608, VMware Fusion 2 Build 116369

In both Virtual Machine softwares, I set the RAM to 1024MB.

Tests:
PerformanceTest 6.1 Evaluation from http://www.passmark....products/pt.htm

PerformanceTest.zip contains the result files which can be viewed with the PerformanceTest. For those who don't have PerformanceTest, please see the BenchmarkResults.zip.

Conclusion:
VMware Fusion is much faster than Parallels Desktop, especially when it comes to 3D graphics. But there is one thing that I don't understand: When I encode video from RMVB to PMP-AVC with Windmencoder (it's a GUI for mencoder), I have about 80 fps in Parallels vs 60 fps in VMware Fusion.
